The Malaysian Watercolour Society (formerly known as Malaysian Watercolour Organisation)was established in 1992 and is currently helmed by Puan Aminah Abdul Rahman. The organisation has successfully organised numerous exhibitions both locally and internationally.
MWS 2012 Exhibition, which runs from 17th until 31st March 2012, marks MWS' 8th exhibition with us at NN Gallery. This exhibition will showcase recent works by 31 members of the society (MWS).
The quiet fashion of watercolours is ideal for capturing everyday scenes. A spot painter would find a location and begin a narrative of his surroundings. A favourite amongst the members of this society are rural, floral and fauna, figurative and picturesque scenes. With strong affiliation to our roots and heritage they continue to paint scenes that are reminiscent of early years past, life in the kampungs, the going-ons of local scenes and historical landmarks and buildings.
Participating artists include Tan Sik Yaw, Tan Suz Chiang, Mohammad Faizal Hj Zainal, Yeo Eng Peng, Jansen Chow, Abdul Ghani Ahmad, Lee Eng Beng, Lee Weng Fatt, Alex Leong Yim Kuan, Dr. Wong Seng Tong, Kho Choon Lee, Zaharuddin Sarbini, Jacky Chin, Lee Sing Pan, Md Nor Bidin, Calvin Chua, Liang See Shong, Cheung Pooi Yip, Yong Look Lam, Koh Shim Luen, Chow Chin Chuan, Lee Kee Seng, Khoo Chiang Jin, Khor Seow Hooi, Tean Wei Gin, Dato Tengku Alaudin bin Tengku Abdul Majid, Loo Hooi Nam, Nurhayati Mohd Yusoff and King Ban Hui.
With a deep concern to bring back watercolour to its glory days, this much loved and much overlooked medium presented in this exhibition will highlight some interesting facets of Malaysian life and environment.
