Rumah Air Panas (RAP) presents a solo exhibition by Pahang-born artist, Liew Kwei Fei. Although graduated in ink painting from Malaysian Institute of Art, this exhibition will feature more than 200 pieces small-scale drawings he has made during the last 2 years.

Kwai Fei's utilizes images of popular culture, with strong influences of Japanese Manga, as a departure point for intuitive exploration into his own psyche.

The images in some of the drawings are dissected and reconfigured into strangely familiar anthropomorphic life forms; and in others, chaotic cancellations that suggests a tumultuous inner self. His works also suggest a mesmerizing act of repetitive doodling.

The theme revolves around the act of drawing: as a form of hypnotism; as a search for the archetypical image; and as balance between structure and chaos.

This wonderful body of work will be shown in two places as follow:
