Reflections from My Heart: Solo Exhibition of Cheung Pooi Yip  is part of the Gallery Weekend Kuala Lumpur 2017 (GWKL).

Gallery Weekend KL  is a celebration of aesthetic and cultural diversity in Malaysia’s capital city. Coinciding with Malaysia’s 60th year of Independence, Gallery Weekend 2017 aspires to promote Malaysia’s dynamic cultural scene.

Born in Penang, 1936, Malaysian renowned artist Cheung Pooi Yip has 60 years of experience with art. Cheung has held 7 solo exhibitions and his retrospective exhibition was showcased in the Penang State Art Gallery in 2014.

Cheung’s passion for art has never ceased. To date, he practises self-mastery by acquiring more skills and advancing his art career, producing numerous artworks with great depth. To him, creating art is to bestow life into his artworks, giving every painting a unique story. To do this, the artist has to exert his utmost efforts. He feels that life withers away quickly; only art will live forever.

Over the years, he has worked tirelessly on sketching, Chinese ink painting, oil painting, watercolour painting and acrylic painting. He incorporates the essence of different painting techniques and synthesises the delicate Chinese strokes and vibrant hues of western style in paintings. Every piece of his work is unique and non-repeating, presenting the beauty of natural sceneries in smooth brush lines.

Soka Gakkai Malaysia (SGM) is proud to present “Reflections from My Heart: Solo Exhibition of Cheung Pooi Yip”, with a display of more than 60 artworks comprising oil and acrylic paintings. Most of these are recent works, which were created after the year 2000. They represent the spectrum of his art expressions in that period. 

The showcased artworks include the portrayal of the world around him. They are imbued with Cheung’s passion and in praise of both life and fellow human beings. We hope that everyone will visit the exhibition to enjoy, appreciate and be inspired by the wonderful artworks which are infused with the spirit and vitality of Cheung Pooi Yip.

On November 18, we will have a “Meet the Artist” session after the opening ceremony at 4.30pm at the Soka Exhibition Hall. Come, listen and be inspired by Cheung’s life story!
