SAS’s newly elected president David Chew and Vice President Sebastian Jong are among artists featured, plus Sheila Kho, Joanne Lau, Michelle Liou and Jane Ling.
“I consider my art in the style of abstract expressionism. In my childhood, I was trained in impressionism, and since 2000, I’ve been doing abstracts,” said Chew, who is also a member of the Malaysia National Visual Arts Gallery.
“I use water colours, oil paints and acrylic paints. I especially like huge canvases.”
The six artists mentioned are members of the Malaysia Visual Art Gallery. More recently, they were invited participant of the Sarawak Library’s 2021 Art Show.
All art on display at La Promenade Mall will be for sale. They range from a few hundred ringgit to thousands.
Chew and Jong will conduct two art classes for the public. Chew will present the first class on May 21, 2pm-4pm, which is a workshop titled ‘Self-Actualisation Via Art Jamming’.
“This class is suitable for those with or without painting skills,” Chew said.
Jong who is also an realism artist, started his new journey in abstract art after he discovered the uniqueness of pouring art. He will conduct the second demo and class, ‘Pouring Art Experience with Sebastian’, on May 22, 2pm-4pm.
