Cheong Yew Mun

MA Fine Arts
2019 — 2020

Cheong Yew Mun (Munster) is obsessed with the power of the visual language. He believes it has a profound influence to life and that its symbolism, mood, emotional energy, elements and tone can expand life by way of creating new realities and experiences for the viewer. As a visual artist, he feels that he has major responsibilities and is always in a state of transition and self reflection, elusive from his commercial practice.
