  • Lee Weng Fatt’s work lies mainly in ‘preserving’ heritage buildings by capturing their timeless beauty and allure through his canvas.
  • What enthralls Weng Fatt are the old buildings of his birthplace, the urban landscape of Kuala Lumpur. For him, returning time and time again to these old edifices is akin to journeying back to his roots.
  • His fascination for old buildings, be they private residences or public monuments are the foundation for his work – as more of these buildings are forced to give way in the name of progress, the artist feels an obligation to preserve and document them in the way he knows best – by immortalizing them through oil on canvas and water colour paintings.
