“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.
Since winning the Malaysian Watercolour Society Award 1984, he has gone on to gain many accolades both locally and internationally, and became a Signature Member of the National Watercolour Society (USA) in 1994. He has exhibited widely with solo shows in Bali, Beijing, Jakarta, and Kuala Lumpur, and participated in numerous major exhibitions in Asia and North America. His works have appeared regularly in auctions held by Sotheby’s and Christie’s since 1995.
