About

Kamwei Fong is a Malaysian artist, he works mainly on the animal world, his creations are often described as 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.

Currently, his original art pieces, art prints and ceramic sculptures can be found in Galerie Club Sensible in Paris, France.
