Victor Chin’s Pulau Perhentian

My good friend Victor Chin is holding an exhibition of twenty abstract acrylic paintings on canvas inspired by his stay at Pulau Perhentian back in 2002. This exhibition at Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (KLPac) began earlier today and will end on November 30. At the same time, his wife Numpueng is also exhibiting thirty of her acrylic paintings on canvas at the same venue.

Wuan and I had sneak previews of their paintings the few times that we visited Victor and Numpueng at their home. That was the first time we were up close to artistic pieces like these. I was impressed by Victor’s colour play in his paintings one of which reminded me of fresh tuna fillet. Yes, sad to say, my appreciation of good art is as shallow as my appreciation for fine dining.

Both the exhibitions are opened daily from 10am to 10pm. At 4pm on September 8, there will be a walk through of the exhibition with the artists. For more information, contact Victor at 016 2680258 or email him at vicchin[at]gmail[dot]com.
