Fuen Chin

Fuen Chin

Born: 1979

Hometown: Sungai Petani, Kedah.

Based in: Sungai Petani, Kedah

Fuen Chin is an artist who grew up in Kedah state, Malaysia. Her art takes inspiration from horticulture which is a nostalgic reflection of her childhood. Both her late grandparents were Chinese from Southern China with backgrounds in Chinese herbs and medicine, running a small herbal shop. It was there where Fuen learnt the importance of Chinese herbs and the stories around them.

It is these stories and her visions about plants that provides an endless inspiration for the calligraphic floral paintings. Starting out as a self-taught artist, Chin eventually studied a Fine Art research degree at the Royal College of Art.

She has worked on an art installations, citing the following response from the panel of judges: ‘We very much enjoyed your proposal and presentation and thought there were a lot of interesting possibilities that may emerge from your works.’ She continues to work and develop her calligraphic paintings using Chinese ink within a more contemporary context.

The horticulture-related phenomenon. It is a nostalgic reflection of my childhood.

In the shop, each drawer could accommodate 4 types of herbs and the Chinese names were written on the outside of the drawers.
