Yau Bee Ling is considered to be one of the most established contemporary artists in Malaysia. She was born in 1972 in Port Klang. She studied art at the Malaysian Institute of Art, where she was awarded with a full scholarship. She represented Malaysia at the 9th Asian Art Biennal in Bangladesh. Her work was then selected by a renowned curator in Singapore, T. K. Sabapathy for an exhibition at the Singapore Sculpture Square, and then at the Fukuoka Asian Art Museum.

“In my paintings, my style is still primarily expressionist, but I transform the abstract the figurative by playing with ideas of concealing and revealing. You could call them contemporary paintings with a conventional understanding of the media used.” Yau Bee Ling
