Wong Miau Yong is an Artist with social conscience. His art provokes environmental awareness. He uses modern skills, combines with vivid colors to establish a stile of his own that conveys this environmental message. In his quest to explore the mysteries of this planet, he adventured through volcano craters, inspired through cinders and gases. Immersed himself in nature, of ocean waves and stream flows, of rocks and mountains, sands and stones, of boundless sky and flash of comet, which gives rise to his infinite creation of Artworks with power, emotion and philosophy.
Wong Miau Yong was born in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 1951. He graduated from the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, Singapore in 1972. In the attempt to achieve a higher level of attainment in Fine Arts, he made a study tour of Europe in 1982.
Besides painting, he also experiments on technique and color combinations, using different media from acrylic to oil based to mixed media in his work. He has devoted his life to art this far, and this passion, will never cease.

Intuition - 3 Stories
Elle Six Art Gallery presents
works by Tew Nai Tong, Wong Miau Yong
and Pheh It Hao in a group
exhibition entitled "Intuition - 3 Stories" which runs from 14th October till
28th October 2004.
A storyteller relates stories of folklores within a society, whereas an artist expresses his stories thru art. An artist sees beyond his surroundings, outer appearances and seeks fascinating stories within individuals and the environment. We all have stories to tell and at times we focus too much trying to express ourselves with words. Hence, we forget that our movement, postures and expressions are telling their own stories. Paintings are non-verbal communication. It speaks of society's movements and expressions. Three artists from different generations; but with the same non-conformist attitude towards art, set about capturing the essence and emotions based on their instincts for viewers.
