Deric Ch’ng, an emerging British artist launches his new series of paintings ‘London, The Visit’ from 26th of

November to the 2nd December 2010 at Red Gate Gallery. This forthcoming exhibition will feature a new body

of eighteen works, which all have London as the main theme.

Originally from Malaysia, the artist enjoyed a flourishing carrier from the age of twenty. His works were shown

at the „Penang State Art Gallery‟ and the „Pesta‟ open art show between 1991 and 1998. Additionally, the

artist also was chosen to partake in the Winter Show at the Feren Art Gallery, in Hull, in 2000 to 2004.

In 2006, after graduating as an architect, Deric Ch'ng moved to London. Relocating to the capital allowed him

to take a new perspective to his work. He felt that this move rekindled a freshness and playfulness of that akin

to a tourist, enabling him to explore popular scenes and translating them with his own unique personal

approach, never losing sight of his Eastern upbringing. His paintings include the London Eye, Westminster

Abbey, Tower Bridge, Camden Town, China Town and many other familiar sights.

Deric Ch'ng's style combines the formality and rigor of his native culture, yet his works display a very Western

contemporary edge. His new and often witty observations, which feature in the forthcoming solo show, are a

progression from his previous loose, fluid water colours.

Incorporating a rich and varied spectrum of colour, as well as layers of montage pieces within his work, permits

the forming of these unique paintings. Deric uses luxurious, earthy colours, featuring the passionate Red

derived from his Eastern background. He says “Chinese people are always fascinated by red because it

represents luck, auspiciousness, signifying reunion, health, happiness, harmony, peace and prosperity”.

Deric‟s work evokes inspiration and harmony. He is available for commissions in the private, public and

corporate sectors. Please, have a further look at
