Lai Tiew Seong 黎潮湘
13/10/2013 - 27/10/2013
Younie Gallery, Kuala Lumpur
Lai Tiew Seong - an artist with a deep, inseparable passion towards Chinese ink art. During his early years, to overcome environmental restraints, he chose to be taught by correspondence in his journey to self-learn classical Chinese ink.
Fast forward to today, he has now built a strong foundation in ink painting, which can be seen clearly through his simple yet meaningful strokes, colours, and lines. His subjects are inspired from the fishing scenes in the East Coast where he has lived for most of his life.
By purposely blocking the view with plain spaces, Lai successfully created dimension and a sense of space transcendence, thus imbuing a transparent and serene atmosphere that is highly appreciated in Chinese art.
