Gan Chin Lee (b. 1977, Selangor, Malaysia) completed a Diploma of Illustration at The One Academy in Malaysia (1998), before enrolling in the Advanced Studies in Mural Painting (2005) at the Beijing Central Academy of Fine Arts where he completed a Masters degree in Fine Art (2008). Upon graduation, he returned home, won the Malaysian Emerging Art award (2009) and with consecutive solo exhibitions ‘Fragment·Defragmentation’ (2010) at Galeri Chandan, Kuala Lumpur; ‘Soliloquy’ (2011) at Valentine Willie Fine Art, Kuala Lumpur steadily built a portfolio that recognised him as one of the leading figurative painters with leaning towards social realism. Currently helming the newly established Fine Art department at the aforementioned The One Academy, his highly skilled painterly style of desaturated colours and disciplined technique capture ethos and pathos. His personal take and observations within local settings are sublimations, “at best I feel that they carry in them a kind of beauty of the melancholic”.
