Born in Menglembu, Ipoh, Wong as a child, knew he was meant to paint. Despite objections from his parents, Wong enrolled himself in the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, subsequently graduating in 1965. His paintings are portrayal of his life experiences, preference and observations. As seen in this painting, with Wong’s keen eye, he has captured the rural scene of a man herding buffalos through a sawah padi. With fluid brush strokes and colours, Wong brings his viewers on a journey to the rural and serene area in Malaysia.
