Chan Kok Hooi is Malaysia’s multi-talented artist who has established himself as one of the most exciting contemporary painters of his time. Born in 1974 in Penang, Kok Hooi’s work is said to be very ‘experimental’ where he uses many different types of medium and images to express and convey his message to the viewer. Kok Hooi’s art education came through the Malaysian Institute of Art where he graduated with a Diploma in Fine Art majoring in Painting. There’s much exuberance and energy to Chua Kok Hooi’s works. From the get-go, viewers are greeted by loud, vivid colours, complemented by fluid brushstrokes to add depth to the artwork. Only upon dissecting will one discover the enigma that lies within each work.
