  • About the Artist

    Francis Chong was born in 1974 from Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia.

     

    In 2009, he held his first solo exhibition at the City Art Gallery, Kuala Lumpur.

    In 2017, his second solo exhibition was held in the Fo Guang Shan Dong Zen Temple. 

     

    In 2018, Chong took part in the 1st International Watercolour Festival of IWS Czech Republic, and the 1st Malaysia International Watercolour Biennale in which he received the “Excellent Award” in the National Category.

     

    In 2020, Chong won first prize in the Contemporary Painting and Art Competition.

    Chong was a successful self-taught artist who was passionate about life, full of justice yet sentimental and sensitive. From zero beginning to today's achievements relies on his strong-willed, reflective mind and ambitious pursuit of art. Yet even after bearing through such a tough journey, he was able to retain the simplicity and purity of his soul. His temperament and character can be seen clearly through his artworks. 

    In contrary to today's sophisticated yet ostentatious world, the subjects of his realistic drawings are mainly figurative, landscapes, birds and other animals. To him, realism is not only the closest way to awaken humanity but also his outcry to the world. For instance, in his pigeons series, works like "Guarding Hope", "Peace & Harmony" and "Auspicious Pigeons" all express his yearning for peace and tranquility. On the other hand, "Infinite Wisdom", "Ploughing" and "Old Man" demonstrate his desire to awaken kindness, love and support between the people.
