Alex Ong Boon Hau is a Malaysian Asian Modern & Contemporary artist who was born in 1951. He studied at the Kuala Lumpur College of Arts in 1977 and went on to establish himself through a career in art. Ong’s forte lies in watercolour with a slant towards landscapes and flowers. Born in Muar, Johor, the artist spent a lot of his time in New Zealand which served as a picturesque destination for a landscape artist such as himself. Ong’s watercolour techniques are known to blend both the Eastern and Western influences.
