Chong Hon Fatt
Penang’s premier oil painter, Chong was commissioned by two UNESCO World Heritage Sites in China, Guangdong and Fujian, to paint their heritage buildings in 2007 and 2009. In 2013, the Penang State Art Museum held a retrospective for the 74-year-old artist considered as one of the state’s living pioneer artists. Chong will be sharing about the works he’s kept in his personal collection and which aren’t for sale. Come and hear him share about his varied painting adventures, and how he is so focused on painting that his meal or snack could be just hard-boiled eggs and plain water!
