Description: KWAN CHIN (B. Kuala Lumpur, 1946) Going Home, 2011 Signed “Kwan Chin” on lower left Batik 45 x 54 cm

Condition Report: Signed “Kwan Chin” on lower left

Notes: Kwan Chin has brought more life into batik by painting them in vivid colours, illustrating scenes of Malaysian life. Going Home is a depiction of people living a simple everyday life in the countryside, a life of little to no complications. Country life is undoubtedly still and people have no qualms about living side by side – everybody goes to work in the morning and comes back together, no competition whatsoever involved. The setting, as captured by the artist, is definitely something that is envied by those who live in concrete jungles. The entire piece speaks peace, quiet and picturesque. Born in Kepong, Kuala Lumpur in 1946, Kwan Chin attended the Nanyang Academy of Fine Art in Singapore during which he learned how to use traditional art materials. Shortly thereafter, he delved into the world of advertising but once he was introduced to batik, it instantly changed his career path. His batik pieces are rich in colour and his work is known around the world, having been exhibited in London and Miami.
