Kamwei Fong is a Malaysian artist, he works mainly on the animal world, his creations are often described as minimalistic, poetic, humourous, imaginative, playful and dream-like.

The Furry Thing is a series of furry animal illustrations first created by Kamwei inadvertently back in 2009. Using only black micro pigment ink, Kamwei has created a menagerie of playful kitties, doggies and other animals. Despite their contextual isolation and uniform style, each of Kamwei’s cats display unique personalities: some are fluffed and puffed into self-contained balls; others look with curiosity or wariness at fish that dangle or waves that crash from the animals’ own tails. The artist builds each feline form using innumerable short thin lines, varying the density of the marks to create volume as well as a palpable sense of furriness. 

Kamwei's artwork has received global recognition including the exhibitions at Salon des Beaux Arts in Paris, and Art Expo Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur, collaborating with worldwide fashion giant Uniqlo in 2020 and 2022. His personal magic moment was when he was the only Malaysian invited and entered the Paper category of Salon des Beaux Arts 2019 at The Carrousel du Louvre in Paris, France, in the history of Salon des Beaux Arts exhibition. He attended the exhibition again in September 2023 to feature his Furry Thing series of artwork at Réfectoire des Cordeliers, Paris, France. Established in 1862, Société Nationale des Beaux Arts  (SNBA) organises Salon des Beaux Arts to showcase the work of artists with exceptional talent and skills. His series of feline works were also showcased in the most prestigious art fair, the Art Expo Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur in 2018 and 2019.

In 2021, Kamwei’s first book, “Kamwei Fong – The Furry Thing” Italian/English bilingual edition was published in Bologna, Italy by Becco Gallo. In 2023, Kamwei was ranked as “Most talented & Creative Artists in Malaysia - The Top 10” by Top 10 of Malaysia. 

Currently, his art pieces, book and merchandise can be found at the galleries and boutiques in the United States, United Kingdom, Japan, Taiwan, Italy, Spain, France, South Korea, Malaysia and Singapore.
