PING LIAN YEAK

The Saturated Palette
March 10 - March 30, 2017
Reception: Thursday March 16, 2017 6-8 PM

A prodigy at 11 and today a mature painter of 22, Ping Lian Yeak has already created a body of work that stands out as some of the liveliest art of the past decade. Yeak is an autistic savant who creates beautiful, detailed depictions of animals and great architectural sites. He works in acrylic, oil, watercolor, charcoal, and ink, sometimes combining multiple media, to make spirited images that recall both Impressionism and the grand nature studies of Romanticism. 

The speed with which Ping Lian Yeak works adds a distinct energy, lending his works a contemporary feel. Color can streak across the canvas with ambition or appear in wide swaths, crossing over several objects. The linework manages to both vibrate with impulsiveness and capture fine, minute moments, causing the images to sing.

In 2009, when the artist was just 15, he experienced the official opening of his personal gallery in Malaysia, established by The Art Commune and supported by JP Morgan Chase Foundation in collaboration with ABWM. It remains open today, featuring a permanent installation of the young artist's works at The Settlement Hotel in the city of Melaka, Malaysia.

Ping Lian Yeak was born in Malaysia, and currently lives in Sydney, Australia.
