Fans of Chang Fee Ming’s works invariably know that they would almost always revolve around traditional life in Malaysia, particularly his beloved home state of Terengganu, or what catches his eye whenever he wanders the planet. After all, as he is fond of saying, “To travel and see and paint is, for me, a way of learning, and part of my life’s philosophy.” His travels of rural Southeast Asia in his elaborately detailed, intensely coloured paintings, evident in this painting, ‘Mingun, Myanmar, 1998’. This is a serene composition of a fishing village in Myanmar, meticulously portrayed to transport viewers to the location.
