Description: Wong Perng Fey has been touted as a contemporary landscape artist, playing with atmospheric and chromatic hues and textural nuances, often in ambitious large-format works. His landscapes are not the picturesque types or filled with soaring paeans of rarefied peaks, but one full of character, though lolling between abstract and realism, and raw beauty. They are transient like the humans passage, and often, there is little suggestion even of human habitation, though there is of human intervention. Perng Fey is in Beijing for the past seven years, including a stint at the famous 798 Art Zone in Dashanzi and the now demolished Heiqiao art district. Wong Perng Fey graduated with a Diploma from the Malaysian Institute of Art, Kuala Lumpur, in 1998, and was Rimbun Dahan’s resident artist in 2002. His first solo was at Valentine Willie Fine Art in 2000 and had several solos at Richard Koh Fine Art including Equilibrium in 2014 and Impetus in January 2018. He took part in Art Stage Singapore 2015, Beirut Art Fair 2011 and Art Expo Malaysia 2011. Among his overseas shows were Role Play (Vivi Yip Art Room, Jakarta, 2009), I’ll Wait For You To Come Back (Slot Gallery, Sydney, 2010), The Other Shore (798 Art Zone, Beijing, 2012), Equilibrium (Art Seasons, Beijing, 2014) and Tonight The Light Is Almost Sweet (Hong Kong, 2015).
