Discover the extraordinary work of autistic savant artist Ping Lian Yeak—a prodigy by age 11 with his own personal art gallery by age 15.
Now in his early twenties, Ping Lian Yeak has already produced a remarkable body of work. Blessed with an exceptional artistic gift—and a mother who wouldn’t give up on helping him fulfil his potential—his work inspires hope.
Ping Lian’s work depicts animals and great architectural sites in intricate detail, and has been heralded as some of the liveliest art of the past decade. He works in acrylic, oil, watercolour, charcoal and ink, at times combining multiple media to create contemporary dynamic images, alive with movement and energy, that evoke aspects of both Impressionism and the grand nature studies of Romanticism.
High-profile Exhibitions Around the Globe
Widely exhibited around the world, Ping Lian has featured on numerous documentaries and in various high-profile art shows. In 2009, at just 15, his personal gallery was officially opened in Malaysia. It remains open today, featuring a permanent installation of the young artist's works at The Settlement Hotel in the city of Melaka, Malaysia.
Ping Lian Yeak was born in Malaysia, and currently lives in Sydney, Australia. If you would like to learn more about Ping and his upcoming exhibitions please visit www.pinglian.com. You can also find him on Facebook.
