“To travel and see and paint is for me a way of learning, part of my life philosophy.”
“Throughout the journey, the things you see, the people you meet, even the air you smell can give you so much enjoyment. I don’t count how many paintings I can do every trip – this way, the travel is full of potential and surprises.”
Chang Fee Ming is one of Asia’s most accomplished watercolour artists. Born and based in Kuala Terrengganu, Malaysia, the self-taught artist began his career in the early 1980s. Since then he has become one of Asia’s most highly regarded artists working with watercolour, with acclaimed works that are being exhibited and collected all over the world.
For over 20 years, his subject has been the people and places of Southeast Asia, portrayed through an extraordinary grasp of texture and light, as well as vibrancy of colour and composition.
