A graduate of the Kuala Lumpur College of Fine Art, Ng Foo Cheong’s paintings reflect historical and cultural significance. By layering paint, symbols and textures, Cheong metaphorically and visually articulates the impact of ancient societies on the evolving cultural identity of the contemporary Asian world. He creates by drawing inspiration from his own emotions. A master of contrasts, Cheong engenders a unique dialogue between the art of past and present cultures.
Cheong’s art has been displayed in shows in London, Stockholm, Brussels, New York, West Indies, Korea, Japan, Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore and Australia.
