Serenity and harmony in the midst of modernity. With a view overlooking the iconic skyscrapers of Kuala Lumpur, the occupant of this house seems to be taking it slow — a luxury for those who live in the city.

Lui Cheng Thak studied at the Kuala Lumpur College of Art from 1987 to 1989. His early solos were As I Was Passing (Hotel Istana, organised by Pelita Hati), Our Heritage (Rusli Hashim Fine Art, 2001), As I Was Passing II (Galeri Citra, 2006), Circles: Nostalgia and Collective Memory (White Box Publika, 2014). This was followed by consecutive solos with PINKGUY Gallery, the latest being, Touched (2018), and Endless (2017). He had a record of sort in his Redeem solo exhibition at PINKGUY Gallery in 2014 when all 12 works were sold within 18 minutes of opening.
