About the Instructor:

Liew Kwai Fei is a professional artist who has been practicing for more than 10 years. He received his Diploma in Fine Arts from Malaysian Institute of Art (MIA), where he majored in Ink Painting. He explores high and low culture alongside issues associated with the legacy of colonialism such as class, nationalism, and race through the language of painting. Spanning over a decade, his practice is contextually specific to the artistic and political landscapes of the time, both locally and globally. The idiosyncrasy and hybridity of Liew’s style are clearly manifested in his modular paintings and installation art. He has had seven solo exhibitions to date and has participated in numerous group exhibitions in Malaysia and Singapore. His work has also been collected by institutions such as the National Art Gallery, Kuala Lumpur and the Singapore Art Museum. He also actively participated in Artist Residencies programme in Australia, India, Malaysia and Pakistan.
