“In my own personal practice; my consciousness affects the work. For example, the type of music I play in the studio : Influences my moods, which in turn, influences the work, and how the oil and mineral spirits – in the beginning – inert substances, wait patiently for an energy source, a murmur, which will determine its course in nature and the unfolding of its purpose.”


Nicholas Choong is a well-known Malaysian artist for “Cityscapes” series which depicts city scenes of Kuala Lumpur in abstract expression. This series reveals his perspective and emotion of a cityscape as well as himself, about being an artist. As a self-taught artist, he endeavours to work on different media and subjects. He collects ready-made materials at his studio to create figure paintings. He also replaces canvas with aluminium panels to observe reflection of lights as paints flow on metal plates.

Nicholas Choong continues making conversation with paintings. During his creative process, those unseen, immovable yet crucial forces lead him to solid colours and lines on his art. All his works highlight Nicholas Choong’s conscious nature and he welcomes everyone to observes and interprets his paintings by their own thoughts.
