Tony Ng collects many Batik for his own interest. He chooses batiks to be his painting subject, not only because their vibrant colour and patterns, batik is also a symbol to present civic culture of Malaysia. Tony Ng attempts to remind people to look back traditional items that may have forgotten at somewhere else, just like traditional convention has been gradually
vanishing in the history. Every Batik is unique. Every piece presents beauty of own culture. Tony Ng Chit Keong was born in 1980. He graduated from Kuala Lumpur Collage of Arts with diploma in Fine Art and also completed art restoration course at Accademia Riaci in Italy. Tony Ng is an emerging Malaysian artist who focuses on aesthetics of batiks and he tries to transform beauty of batiks to become a unique subject in contemporary art.
