'Traces by the Wind', 2015

Hong Kong-based gallery Contemporary by Angela Li is currently exhibiting works by Wong Perngfey

The gallery is currently presenting a selection of works by Malaysian artist Wong Perngfey. The exhibition is entitled  Tonight the Light is Almost Sweet, and is Wong's first solo exhibition in Hong Kong.

The show displays works which he believes manifest the impact of places he has lived in. Born in Malaysia, he was previously based in the artist village of Yogyakarta in Central Java, Indonesia before moving to Beijing, China in 2010.

When he moved to Beijing, his artworks still bore the traces he brought with him from the Southeast Asian countries he lived in, such as recognisable settings of Indonesia and Malaysia. His works have now become abstract, showcasing his evolution as an artist.

He has been living in Beijing and working as a full time artist since 2010.
