Kamwei Fong

Malaysian artist Kamwei Fong is know for his fluffy cat illustrations and for the goldfish series, Bo & Friends. He is a former art director and design department head with twenty years experience in the creative industry. His work is often described as poetic, humorous, imaginative, playful and dream-like.  We particularly like his vast collection of ceramic menagerie.  On Wonky Peach blog he says this about work challenges:

“There are many challenges along the way, ideas seems to be the biggest one. I love to tell stories through my work, but good ideas are not a common thing, not to mention a really great one. So I read a lot, watch a lot of videos, if possible travel more, learn from others and play with animals, do gardening, work out, cooking and enjoy good food! So much fun and that sparks creativity.”

You can follow the artist on his blog and Instagram.  His portfolio can be viewed on Coroflot.
