Nicholas Choong portraits a city scenery with dense and rich colors. Buildings are made of bold, scraping and slapping paints with palette knives. Lights of signs, buildings, cars’ headlights or reflection on rain illuminate the city.Paints drip onto canvas become different intermittent gleam of city lights. His paintings are unlikely to tell people what does a metropolitan city, such as Kuala Lumpur, look like, instead, he features an artist’s sentiment of what he feels about the city. Nicholas Choong was born in 1977. he started painting and later joined the Sembilan Art Residency Programme in Seremban. In 2018, Nicholas Choong joined the esteemed Rimbun Dahan Arts Residency as a 3-months Southeast Asian Artist in Residence which culminated in his cityscapes works and had exhibited them at the National Art Gallery in Malaysia.
Nicholas Choong描绘了一个色彩浓郁，色彩丰富的城市风光。建筑物由大胆，刮擦和挥洒涂料与调色刀组成。他在作品中采用了冷色调，展现了城市中较为冰冷的印象。建筑物与标志的灯光，汽车前灯或雨水反射照亮了整个城市。油漆滴在帆布上变成了不同的间歇性城市灯光。他的画作不是告诉人们吉隆坡这样的大都市的样貌，相反，则是做为一个艺术家眼中的吉隆坡。Nicholas Choong出生于1977年。他开始绘画，后来加入了Seremban的Sembilan Art Residency Program。2018年，Nicholas Choong加入Rimbun Dahan Arts Residency，成为一名为期3个月的东南亚驻地艺术家，让他的城市景观作品达到顶峰，并受邀在马来西亚国家美术馆展出。
