Ok Hwa Cheong

Artist Cheong’s work is based on microcosmic nature of society, a formation from a small breathing life into a much larger being that starts with a touch of not just several thousands of brushstrokes but that of many several hundred thousands. Viewers can imagine an ocean filled with microorganisms. The details and the process of her work from these endless numbers of brushstrokes definitely draw a cry of amazement and awe.

Also, her work delineates innocence and purity, the motif of harmony through life. During her school years in Paris, she focused on life and harmony to send a message of hope and love, and warmth of human nature through her work.
