Biography

Born and based in Singapore, Warren Khong situates his practice primarily in the field of painting. Previously dealing with the aesthetics of beauty in the artificiality of its creation, he now contemplates concepts of painting and its relation to surface and materiality - from selected metal surfaces to light, colour and reflection, proposing for material as Idea. Notions of/on beauty are never far from his mind however and they still hover.

Khong graduated with a Master of Arts, Fine Arts from the LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore in partnership with Goldsmith’s College, University of London, U.K. He has exhibited both internationally as well as locally, having had three solo exhibitions - ‘A Collection of Shapes in Red, Blue, Green, Yellow, Black and White (I still don’t remember the name of the girl I saw that day)’ at Marcuard Asia Pte. Ltd., Singapore and ‘Warren Khong: A Solo Exhibition (In partnership with Whisky Live & Fine Spirits Paris 2011 and La Maison Du Whisky)’ at the Hôtel Salomon De Rothschild/Salon VIP, Paris, both of which occurred in 2011. His third solo exhibition - ‘Same Same But Different’ was held at Reading Room, Singapore in 2013. His works have also been used by La Maison du Whisky for their ‘Artist’ range and ‘Karuizawa selected by La Maison du Whisky’ limited edition whisky labels. He is also a trained draughtsman in the Sol Lewitt foundation and worked on both Sol LeWitt wall drawings at the Marina Bay Sands, Singapore.
