1977 | Malaysia
Nicholas Choong portraits a city scenery with dense and rich colors. Buildings are painted with palette knives to create bold, scraping and swaying paints. Lights of signs, buildings, cars’ headlights or reflection on rain illuminate the city. His paintings does not outline the Kuala Lumpur that we think should be. Instead, he features an artist’s sentiment of what he feels about the city.

In 2018, Nicholas Choong joined the esteemed Rimbun Dahan Arts Residency as a 3-months Southeast Asian Artist in Residence which culminated in his cityscapes works and had exhibited them at the National Art Gallery in Malaysia.
