Lee Kian Chong 李建聪
Born in a tranquil village in Malaysia, Lee Kian Choong’s carefree childhood was closely intertwined with elements of nature, until he picked up photography while pursuing his education in the United Kingdom.
He opened his own portrait studio in 1991 and has since photographed royalties, ministers, ambassadors, celebrities, and other prominent figures. However in 2007, he realised that his true interest resided in painting, as it has since his early childhood. Having made up his mind, he closed his studio and channeled his commitment into becoming an internationally recognised full time painter. He specialises in Contemporary Chinese Ink Paintings, which are generously imbued with his rich childhood memories and unique interpretation of both life’s meaning and the universe.
