Condition Report: Signed and dated “Lai Wai 2015” on lower right

Notes: Soon Lai Wai rose to prominence due to his beautiful depictions of the ever-pure lotus flowers teeming with life, surrounded by lush tropics and nature. However, this new series sees the artist moving towards a more abstract mind frame. When the artist was asked about this abrupt change, he responded, This new series is an attempt to reflect my current state of mind – peace. To see the water and its reflection. To remind me that we should always look back at ourselves and inner soul. The answer always in ourselves.” Soon Lai Wai was born in Penang in 1970. After attending the Saito Academy of Design, he began working as an artist for an overseas advertising company for five years before making the decision to become a full time artist. Until this day, his artworks are being collected by collectors from the US, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia and some of them are displayed in Hotel Ascot, Kuala Lumpur.
