Just like other kids in small town, I started my drawing with the influence of comics. I didn’t have opportunity to learn Chinese ink painting as there was no Chinese ink painting class conducted in my hometown, Muar. In other words, the Chinese ink painting was not a popular medium of art in my area.

Due to financial hardship of my family, I couldn’t afford to enroll in any art classes in my area. That situation forced me to teach myself to paint. Without knowing it, I had developed certain art skills and techniques of my own. Surprisingly, my artworks had attracted judges’ attentions in many art competitions I participated.

This award winning watercolor was done by me at the age of 16 in 1986. By observing the techniques and style employed in this work, I could tell that I had a tendency in admiring oriental art during my school days.

One day, a Chinese painter of Kuala Lumpur came to my hometown to do Chinese painting demonstration. The artist had completed his lively bamboo painting within just a few minutes. I was so impressed by the artist’s unique brushwork. That was really the first time I got a complete idea what Chinese Ink Painting was all about.
