TONY NG 黄则强
1980 | Malaysia
Tony Ng collects many Batik for his own interest. He chooses batiks to be his painting subject, not only because their vibrant colour and patterns, but batik is also a symbol to present the civic culture of Malaysia. Tony Ng attempts to remind people to look back traditional items that may have forgotten at somewhere else, just like traditional convention that has been gradually vanishing in the history.
Every Batik is unique. Every piece presents the beauty of culture. Tony Ng Chit Keong was born in 1980. He graduated from Kuala Lumpur College of Arts with diploma in Fine Art and also completed art restoration course at Accademia Riaci in Italy. Tony Ng is an emerging Malaysian artist who focuses on aesthetics of batiks and he tries to transform the beauty of batiks to become a unique subject in contemporary art.
