As a platform to launch promising young artists to a wider public, the annual 3 Young Contemporaries at Valentine Willie Fine Art this year introduces three artists from the region - Eko Nugroho from Indonesia, Natthawut Sing-Thong from Thailand and Vincent Leong from Malaysia.
Although technically still a student (since 1997), majoring in painting at the Institut Seni Indonesia (ISI), Eko Nugroho is one of the major players in the alternative and underground comic scene in the fertile artistic milieu of Yogyakarta.
Natthawut Sing-Thong (b. 1978, Ubonratchatane, Thailand) studied at the Faculty of Fine Arts, Chiangmai University and graduated in 2003 with a Bachelor in Fine Arts. He has had two solo exhibitions, 'Recent Works' (2004) and 'A Black Horse in the New Moon Night' (2005) at Numthong Gallery, and another solo at Bangkok University Gallery in April this year.
Vincent Leong (b. 1979, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia) studied Communication Design at Centre of Advanced Design (CENFAD), Kuala Lumpur (1998-2000) and returned to Malaysia after graduating with Bachelors in Fine Art at Goldsmiths College, University of London in 2004.
Exhibition will be open to the public from 27th April to 14th May 2005 at Valentine Willie Fine Art, 1st Floor No. 17, Jalan Telawi 3, Bangsar Baru, Kuala Lumpur 59100.
