Kok Yew Puah was born in Klang, Selangor, and, apart from going abroad to study, he lived most of his life in Klang and is sometimes even referred to as a “Klang” artist. After studying painting and print-making at the Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne, Kok Yew Puah left art during the 70s for a long hiatus to manage his family’s foodstuffs business. In the late 80s, he made a tentative return to the art world, and began to develop his own extraordinary brand of Malaysian realism. His finely detailed, large canvases have a distinctive local colour - concrete greys and glaring blue skies are punctuated by the bright tones of late 20th century youth fashion and advertising, cars stand abandoned in tall green lalang.
