Yong Cheng Wah is the son of legendary artist Yong Mun Sen, who was also known as a prominent figure in the Malaysian visual arts scene. His works have been collected nationwide and internationally by the National Art Gallery of Malaysia, Bank Negara, the French National bank, Paul Getty as well as Malaysia’s first Prime Minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman. His early batik artworks are a testament to his extraordinary skills in manipulating the medium with his signature technique, as what can be seen in this beautiful piece.
