' The Plein Air Artist '
Peter Liew is one of Malaysia’s leading plein -air artists who works with oil and paints landscapes and cityscapes exclusively.
In his latest upcoming works more portraits will be introduce. Let us introduce you to his latest 'The Face' series.
Bringing one on a spectacular journey covering many of the world’s cities, Peter Liew captures the majestic beauty and life of these creations through his bold strokes, vivid colours, and his signature impasto textures, characteristically applied with skillful use of palette knives. It is these confident applications that lend his works a three-dimensional quality, creating a remarkable visual impact.

PETER LIEW RETROSPECTIVE
28 JULY - 10 SEPT 2018
@ WISMA KEBUDAYAAN SOKA GAKKAI MALAYSIA
Central to the success of his vision are his interests in both landscape and heritage. Nature, in Liew’s mind, is the greatest master of ethereality while heritage for him is central to cultural identity. Through his paintings, he searches for people’s heritage and marks of nature’s timeless presence among the robust strokes in his paintings: full of force yet displaying such aesthetic sensibility.
