  • Being a self-taught artist allows Jayson Yeoh to develop his distinctive style and personality through his artworks. Ever since the creation of the sketching cum semi-realism local Nanyang watercolour style pioneered by the late Yong Mun Sen, it is Jayson Yeoh that has invented one of the most impressive new contemporary semi-realism styles and trends in Malaysia. He fixes his painting subject on “ship” - from there he creates stories and legends, narrating the bitter and sweet of life. With his ingenious use of the language of colours, wise composition, the building of air and atmosphere, perception of time flow and exceptional imagination, Jayson Yeoh vividly brings these interesting stories to life. With a unique, vigorous expression of thoughts and emotions, Jayson Yeoh is certainly a remarkable contemporary watercolourist in Malaysia.


    Jayson Yeoh has held several solo shows, including “Accumulation Series”, Batu Gallery, Johor (2015), “The Legend of Ship”, Younie Gallery, Kuala Lumpur (2015), and “Journey”, Johor (2022). Active in the art arena, Yeoh was invited to exhibit at the “6th International Biennale Breizh Aquarelle”, France (2024); “Fabriano In Watercolor”, Italy (2024); “NWS - RSW 2024 International Exchange Exhibition”, Scottish National Gallery, the UK (2024); “Let the World Be Filled with Love”, Museum Jan van Loon, the Netherlands (2023); “International Watercolour Masters Exhibition”, the UK (2020); “NWS 99th International Open Exhibition”, NWS Gallery, California, USA (2019); “World of High Watercolor”, Moscow (2019); “The 4th Silk Road International Festival & Exhibition”, Shaanxi Provincial Museum of Fine Arts, China (2017); “Incheon Global Art Exhibition”, South Korea (2015); Affordable Art Fair Hong Kong (2014); and many more.
