Aptly titled ‘Celebration, 2016’, this rendition from Kelvin Chap uses bold, vibrant colours that are immensely eye-catching and seem to amalgamate seamlessly with each other. The painting is a joyous celebration of colours and patterns. Kelvin Chap was born in 1974. Kelvin Chap received his education majoring in print making at the Malaysian Institute of Art (1992-1994). He won first prize in the Swatch Street Painting Competition based on the theme, Spirit of Our Times (1994). He was honoured the Juror’s Choice at the Philip Morris Malaysian Art Awards (2001). His solo exhibitions include Belawing and the Great Mamat (Totem and the Great Hunter), Pelita Hati (1996), Idea 9, Pelita Hati (2000), and Old Masks, Modern Man, Maison of Malaysian Art (MoMA) (2011).
