In his childhood memories, he had a colourful fantasy
about underwater life. Some dreamlike features that
stick on to his mind. Going through his diploma in Fine
Arts is a step closer to life. The discovery of naive art
style in his identity - The Fish Series.

To him, naive art is his way of expressing himself. as
a matter of fact, one is inseperable with the memories
of being a child. The brilliant colours. The thick medium
- the gunny. Discovering a unique medium as gunny to 
express his artistic statement is another distinctive style
of Wei Kiang. The effect of this combination creates a
thick, emborse finish to his artworks.

He was among the artists participating at the prestigious
Philip Morris in 1996 and 1997. His works are now a
permanent collection in Japan, Korea, England and
United States.
