EDUCATION

1999-2001       : DIPLOMA IN ILLUSTRATION, DASEIN ACADEMY OF ART

2002-2004       : DIPLOMA IN FINE ART, DASEIN ACADEMY OF ART

 

Cheong Tuck Wai (b. 1979, Kuantan, Pahang, Malaysia) completed his Diploma in Illustration at Dasein Academy of Art, Kuala Lumpur (2001) and subsequently took up fine art studies from 2002 to 2004. He began teaching fine art concurrently while doing the course. He is now a senior part-time lecturer in Dasein Fine Art department. His work revolves around figure painting using mixed media. In finding equilibrium between the mind and the soul, he explores memory where humans, scenes, matters and objects are described and defined, creating images and effects of the deserted or abandoned. This wear and tear materiality of the surface presents a patina that is an aesthetic fascination creating an ambience that presents a compelling statement for the viewers to contemplate on the shifting of time and its passage. He lives and works in Kuala Lumpur.
