Hock-Aun Teh
BELOVED - The 1st Kuala Lumpur Biennale
National Art Gallery of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur
1 November 2017 - 31 March 2018

Hock-Aun is one of over 100 artists from 14 countries invited to take part in the first Kuala Lumpur Biennale whose aim is to foster collaborative opportunities with artists, scientists, social activists, NGO's and the local and international communities at large. Opened by Malaysia's Minister of Culture, the welcoming speech was given by Hock-Aun on behalf of the invited artists.

This series of three new paintings being exhibited at the Biennale explores Hock-Aun's childhood memories of growing up in Sungei Gedong, a village which was surrounded by paddy fields and muddy rivers. The works have been created specifically for the Biennale and are inspired by his experiences of kites, owls, eagles, birds, snakes, the monsoon, weddings and monkeys. They express his love and passion for rural life, nature, animals, and all the activities enjoyed by village boys. These free and wild experiences fire his imagination, flooding his mind with creative energy. The stories are told through his explosive use of colour and calligraphy.
