CHONG SIEW YING   

b.1969   Lives and works in Kuala Lumpur

Chong Siew Ying was born in Kuala Lumpur in 1969. From 1990, she studied fine Art in France at the École des Beaux-Arts de Versailles and later at the Parisian printmaking centre Atelier 63. Returning in 1998, she held her first solo show in Kuala Lumpur in the same year. She won a Special Award in the Young Contemporaries Competition in 2002 and  was a finalist in the Sovereign Asian Art Prize in 2005. A lyrical and elegant painter, her work is profoundly emotive, embracing broad themes such as nature, human sentiments and referencing on literary themes and memes. She has participated in various solo and group exhibitions in Asia and Europe and America, and recently at two exhibitions at Art Stage Singapore 2015, Being Human: Figuratism of 16 Malaysian Artists and Stepping Out. Her works are collected by the National Visual Arts Gallery as well as by respected private collections in Singapore, France and the USA.
