Description: A versatile artist working on traditional heritage in architecture, clothes, culture, musical instruments, occupations and ecology. This set sees patterns commonly found in traditional Malay and Borneoan artefacts, motifs and costumes prominently displayed, a celebration of the foundation of what makes Malaysia unique. Lui Cheng Thak studied at the Kuala Lumpur College of Art from 1987 to 1989. His early solos were As I Was Passing (Hotel Istana, organised by Pelita Hati), Our Heritage (Rusli Hashim Fine Art, 2001), As I Was Passing II (Galeri Citra, 2006), Circles: Nostalgia and Collective Memory (White Box Publika, 2014). This was followed by consecutive solos with PINKGUY Gallery, the latest being, Touched (2018), and Endless (2017). He had a record of sort in his Redeem solo exhibition at PINKGUY Gallery in 2014 when all 12 works were sold within 18 minutes of opening.
