Lee Eng Beng

Lee Eng Beng has been recognized as one of the most prominent and most accomplished watercolourists in Malaysia for over 20 years. His artworks have been showcased in Taiwan, Japan, Korea, China and Singapore, as well as various local art exhibitions. Recently, this Penang-born, self-taught artist started exploring with acrylics and oils on canvas; and the result is a collection of brilliant contemporary artwork which is a testament to his skill and versatility. Eng Beng's keen observation on Penang street life and abstract portraiture is present in all his pieces along with his passion for capturing moments of bonding between family members.
