Born in 1973 in Johor, Wong Lek Sin studied oil painting, watercolour and more at the Central Academy of Arts in Johor Bahru in 1992.
His unique approach in drawing attracted the attention of his teacher who has later became his lifelong mentor. After leaving the academy, he opened an art gallery jointly with his friends in Malacca for a period of time.
When the gallery came to a halt due to various reasons, he was forced to work on other jobs to make ends meet, but no matter how tough life is, he never gives up painting. He even managed to exhibit his works in a group exhibition located in Kuala Lumpur.
With a creative spirit full of passion, Wong continues to practice and research relentlessly on painting until today.
