Entitled ‘Flashes of Colour, 2016’ this rendition from Kelvin Chap uses bold, vibrant colours that are immensely eye-catching and seem to amalgamate seamlessly with each other. The painting is a joyous celebration of colours and patterns. Kelvin Chap was born in 1974. He received his education majoring in print making at the Malaysian Institute of Art (1992-1994). Kelvin won first prize in the Swatch Street Painting Competition based on the theme, Spirit of Our Times (1994). He was honoured the Juror’s Choice at the Philip Morris Malaysian Art Awards (2001).
