Born in a rural coastal town in East Malaysia, Chang Fee Ming is one of Asia’s most renowned watercolourists. His richly detailed and vibrantly coloured paintings of life in idyllic, rural scenes have established his reputation as a sensitive observer of culture and promoter of culture. Chang expertly transforms colours into wondrous snippets of life. The artist has developed a collection spanning more than two decades, depicting rural people, culture and landscapes of countries in Asia and beyond. His acclaimed artwork is exhibited and collected throughout the world, and has appeared regularly at Christie’s auctions since 1995. Several books have been published about his work, including The World Of Chang Fee Ming (1995), Mekong (2004) and Imprinted Thoughts (2009) which was published in conjunction with his exhibition at Singapore Tyler Print Institute (STPI).
