Description: A grotesque piece; a tragedy displayed for all. The creatures seemingly hound and torture the main character, and judging from his expression, it seems like he’s at his limit. Tey Beng Tze creates dramatic works using provocative elements exposing the darker side of human nature. Current affairs, social injustices and local satire lie behind the symbolism in the image. Tey Beng Tze graduated with a Diploma in Fine Art from the Malaysian Institute of Art, Kuala Lumpur in 2003. With experience running art spaces and working as a set designer, Tey has had his work shown in many art shows in Malaysia, his recent showings including Dari Mata Turun Ke Hati, Central Market Artist Showcase (2009); Young Malaysian Artist – New Objec(tion), Galeri Petronas (2010); Sama-Sama — Indonesia, Malaysia dan Philippines, Bentara Budaya Bali, Indonesia (2015); and Think Ink 01, RAW Art Space, Jalan Panggong (2017). He has had two solo exhibitions, Dirty Mary Crazy Mickey at Findars Space (2009) and From Little Things, Big Things Grow, Lost Gens Contemporary Art Space, Kuala Lumpur (2015).
