Wong Perng Fey (b.1974, Kuala Lumpur) is an artist that has built his reputation as an experimental and versatile painter since his graduation from the Malaysian Institute of Art under the school's scholarship in 1998. He was awarded the Artist Residency in Rimbun Dahan, Kuang in 2002. His works are in many prominent public collections such as the National Visual Arts Gallery, Kuala Lumpur, Bank Negara Malaysia Museum Art Gallery, Kuala Lumpur and Galeri Petronas, Kuala Lumpur. He lives and works in Beijing.
Perng Fey's gestural paintings of figures, nature, and natural vistas fluctuate between abstraction and figuration with an acute sensitivity to colors, layers and textures. His body of work, consisting of a diverse subject matter, ranging from traditional landscape and portraiture to abstraction exhibits a talented and confident brush play. The canvas, becoming more than a picture plane, is transformed into a 'stage' for the documentation of actions and mistakes. It becomes a space that records gestures and mental states.
