Maisarah LOO( b.1980, Malaysia )
MAISARAH LOO's (b.1980) renderings of Nyonya women from her native Malaysia are vibrant and full of colour. Stylistically influenced from her artistic training in Europe, the themes of her work however stem from a place deeply rooted in South East Asian culture and history, with numerous symbolic and cultural references. Maisarah has exhibited her artworks in several exhibitions in Kuala Lumpur: The Cultural Art Exhibition at the Malaysia Tourism Centre, the Local Artists Exhibition at Karyaneka Cultural Centre and the Artists Art Fair Malaysia 2015. A solo exhibition was held at the Pullman Hotel Lakeside, Putrajaya, Malaysia in June 2015 and at the Fullerton Hotel Singapore in June 2016.
