As a prominent figure in the practice of painting techniques in Indonesia, Huang Fong has set his name on a reputable stance in the art scene through his innovative combination techniques into one canvas. The Chinese-inspired water colour transparency technique, the Western-styled oil painting and the traditional Balinese painting method by colour rubbing. Fong began his journey for the arts in early 1963 through his visit in Bali.

His realist-impressionist paintings produce an alluring aesthetic eminence that is visually appealing to audiences through his use of monochromatic domination offering calm colour nuances. His works have drawn national and international art communities, and have also been displayed in exhibitions across the world, such as the Netherlands, South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, China, Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia.
