Chin Kong Yee
Ampang, Selangor, Malaysia
Born in 1973, Chin Kong Yee’s artwork is easily distinguishable among the crowded fine artists of Malaysia. This is because he exudes the „bird’s eye view” in his work which in many ways seemed like a panoramic view of his objects. His artistic style is labelled as „˜AAP’ or Actuality Accorded Painting. This style has pretty much became his trademark and unique style that very much exude his originality and persona in his art. His artwork is known to be derived from the philosophy that nothing is ever stagnant where everything is constantly changing and evolving. Invoking surrealism whenever possible, Kong Yee’s work depicts his work in 2 main perspectives, namely realistic and unrealistic that combines the present, the past and the future. A graduate of the Central Academy of Art of Kuala Lumpur, his work has firmly establish him as one of the leading contemporary artists of his time and in the country where they have been seen in most public and private spaces nationwide.
