Amongst the participating artists are Malaysian artists Renny Cheng, Louise Low Seok Loo, Low Chee Peng and Tan Kai Shuean, Singaporean artists Ernest Chan Tuck Yew, Tang Kin Yee, Justin Foo Zhi Kai, Yong Kah Kin, and from Hong Kong, Eva Chan, Chow Siu Mou, Alex Heung Kin Fung, Carol Lee Mei Kuen and Leo Wong Chun Yam.
Just launched, Wei-Ling Gallery’s new space at the E&O Hotel, Penang marks the gallery’s third space in Malaysia. The gallery’s other spaces, Wei-Ling Gallery (2002) and Wei-Ling Contemporary (2011) are located in Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur and The Gardens Mall respectively.
Initially set up to showcase the works of Malaysian contemporary artists, the focus of the gallery is to promote the best of contemporary Malaysian art and to support and nurture the careers of the country’s most promising artists.
