Lee Weng Fatt was born in 1967 in Kuala Lumpur. This piece by Lee Weng Fatt is reminiscent of the past, featuring an abandoned old house. With the intention of ‘preserving’ the heritage buildings, Lee captures their timeless beauty and allure through his canvas, as seen with this work. With attention to detail, this artwork can easily transport viewers to the scene. What enthrals Lee are the old buildings of his birthplace, the urban landscape of Kuala Lumpur. For him, returning time and time again to these old edifices is akin to journeying back to his roots. The artist immortalises them through oil on canvas and watercolour paintings.
