|Chan Kok Hooi is Malaysia’s multi talented artist who has established himself as one of the most exciting contemporary painters of his time. Kok Hooi’s work is said to be very experimental where he uses various types of medium and images to express and convey his message to the viewer. Kok Hooi’s art education came through the Malaysian Institute of Art where he graduated with Diploma in Fine Art majoring in Painting.
Kok Hooi brings with him a vast range of experience in the art scene because apart from painting, where he has had many exhibitions and won numerous awards, he is also actively involved with the performance arts where he directed plays and did stage design. It should be noted that Kok Hooi is the Director of a play called Blind held at the Dan Dan Director’s Workshop in Kuala Lumpur in 2002. His most recent award received at the Sovereign Asian Art Prize in Hong Kong is perhaps one of the most notable ones in his list of other equally prestigious awards.
