Valentine Willie Fine Art 17A, Jalan Telawi 3, Bangsar Baru 59100 Kuala Lumpur
In collaboration with iPRECIATION, Valentine Willie Fine Art is delighted to present ‘Modern Classical’, a joint exhibition featuring two renowned Hong Kong based artists, Koo Mei and Cheung Yee. This inaugural joint exhibition in Kuala Lumpur presents a mix of classics and abstracts, as Singer of yesteryear Koo Mei mesmerises viewers with her tranquil landscapes, being featured alongside the pioneer of Modern Chinese art, and Koo Mei’s former art Professor, Cheung Yee. Koo Mei will be featuring 16 of her most stunning creations, all imbued with a nostalgia that aptly defines the artist’s longing for her homeland, a stark deviation from her adopted hometown of Vancouver. Cheung Yee’s works, intriguing and intimidating blocks of red, black, white and bronze, are beautiful abstract shapes depicting Chinese ideograms. Previously the Head of Fine Arts at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Cheung Yee is inspired by the mystical world of traditional myths and Chinese philosophy, an inspirational source alike to former student and talent Koo Mei.
‘Modern Classical’ will be showcased until 23 December. For further enquiries please contact 03-2284-2348.
