Wong Perng Fey was born in 1974, Kuala Lumpur. His highly personalised interpretations of the Malaysian landscape are full of tactility, ambiance, and emotions, expressing Perng Fey’s own reaction to the depletion of nature. His dramatic gestures and abstract renditions are unconventional and give an unusual perspective in conceptualising landscape.
Wong Perng Fey graduated from the Malaysian Institute of Art, Kuala Lumpur in 1998. Having had solo exhibitions in Singapore, Indonesia, and Australia, he has also participated in numerous group exhibitions such as Aku — 99 Self Portraits (1999) and Landscape To Landscape (2002) at Galeri Petronas, Kuala Lumpur. He also exhibited at Young Contemporaries (2002 & 2003) at National Art Gallery, Kuala Lumpur.
In 2002, he was selected for the Rimbun Dahan Residency. His works have been shown in major galleries in Malaysia and are held in the collections of the National Art Gallery Malaysia and Galeri Petronas as well as many respected private collections locally and abroad.
