Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Chong Yan Chuah 蔡崇彦 (B. 1992, Malaysia) is a multidisciplinary artist currently working in Kuala Lumpur. His body of work touches various mediums ranging from digital art, drawing, painting, sculpture and installation – often dialoguing with one another through a mis-en-scène. Coming from an architectural background, his main interest lies at the intersection between the physical environment in which we live in, and the fictional worlds that he creates, challenging the perception of space, reality and experience. Inspired by the idea of an escape, each world serves as an extension of the real life, or an allegory of his emotional state – rather than a creation of a new reality. The otherworldly feels, characters, and elements found in his digital works are results of his playful approach towards art-making – seeking to experiment around the concept of the artist as explorer; one who discovers and reveals the unknown.
