Michael Quah: Discovering Insights
Master Michael Quah was my art teacher back..... er ..... like ages ago ......
Despite the decades passing fleetingly by, he will always be my master, the art teacher who had guided and mentored many of us in our alma mater St. Xavier's Institution in George Town, Penang. Through his spirited teaching, many of us have done well in the Art subject of our secondary school public examinations. I for one managed to secure a distinction in one of the exams, no mean feat considering that he just taught us at a regular classroom and not at an art studio.
Life has treated us well, and though we are now in our twilight years, we still have much gusto and still have much to offer the world. To this end Master Michael has started his "First Online Exhibition" of his acrylic paintings.
As he aptly put it "I am attracted to the beautiful in my surroundings, in people, things, ideas. In them, I discover insights for drawing and painting."
Below are some of his paintings that are representative of the three series of his artwork (click on the respective painting to see the artwork of that series):
All his paintings are for sale.
"My style is semi-abstract and figurative. My area of interest is connected with aspects in wellbeing. The themes in my paintings explore stillness, harmony, energy, growth, tenacity...."
Address: 53, Jalan PU12/4, Taman Puchong Utama, 47140 Puchong, Selangor, Malaysia.
