Description: Ch’ng Huck Theng uses the medium of bronze to illustrate a mentoring relationship between two figures. The older, taller figure has his face skyward, perhaps contemplating some universal truth; while the younger, smaller figure has his face towards the older gentleman, eager to glean from his wisdom. With a Bachelor and Masters in Commerce from Wollongong University, Ch’ng Huck Theng is a man wearing many hats — businessman, publisher, painter, sculptor and founder of CHTNetwork. As an artist, Ch’ng is famous for his contemporary bronze sculptures and abstract paintings that are collected by important art institutions (Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris, Singapore Art Museum, Hong Kong University Museum & Gallery, Shanghai Art Museum, and National Art Gallery Malaysia) around the world and presented as national gifts by the government of Malaysia. He was a recipient of the Asia Art Award 2010, presented by Korea Culture Art Research Institute in Seoul, Korea. He was a Member in the Board of Trustee of National Visual Art Gallery Malaysia (2009-2011), and has been leading the Penang Art Society (the oldest art society in Malaysia) in recent years. His first solo bronze sculpture exhibition (2016) in Melbourne, and the recent solo show in Australia exhibiting large size paintings achieved great success.
