Gan Chin Lee

Gan Chin Lee (b. 1977, Kuala Lumpur) is an emerging painter trained at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing and at the One Academy of Communication Design, Selangor.

He has been awarded a number of awards since graduating such as the Platinum Award by the One Academy, KL, a winner of the MEA Award (Malaysian Emerging Artist Award) in 2009 and the Bronze award for the Graduate Creation Award, Central Academy of Fine Art in Beijing. He is also an art lecturer at The One Academy of Communication Design in Selangor.

A disciplined and highly skilled painter, Chin Lee’s occasionally multi-paneled paintings display complex compositions and amplified perspectives, usually borrowing traditional compositional formulas. His expressive and painterly works depict a wide-array of multi- racial urban scenes and shared social spaces such as Southeast Asian food stalls and coffee shops that are densely populated by characters that seem indifferent to each other. There is usually a sequential narrative in the pictures and deciphering time is expanded due to the usage of polyptychs and panoramic viewpoints. Inner-city anxiety, restlessness and hardship are captured and hyperbolized in his enigmatic and disorientating pictures.
