I love witnessing Lum's large scale spontaneous mural painting process and his passion to teach and include others in his creativity.
I have recently had the pleasure of meeting Malaysian Contemporary Chinese Painter Lum Weng Kong. What a creative and kind man! Lum is the currently the Art advisor for an Educational Group in Beijing, China.
Lum shares his intuitive/expressive art making process workshops with international and local youth, and teachers as well. He has had 13th solo exhibitions both in Malaysia and China .
It is encouraging and exciting for me to witness Lum breathing new life and spontaneity into Chinese art education where the rules around art making are still quite traditional!
Lum shares: "The students, teachers, parents, they splashed, they doodled, they dripped. They really enjoyed the process.
I resolved the whole process with my intuition, just using lines and shapes to make out images."
The entire unfolding of this mural was declared amazing and inspiring for all who participated!
Mural Process: "Expressive activities with no preplanning, I break the rules, and invite students to witness and participate in the intuitive process. " ~ Lum Weng Kong
