Animal Companion Art Exhibition by Ryan Ng at G Hotel Gurney, Penang.

Make your way over to G Art Gallery at G Hotel Gurney as they present you the latest art exhibition, "Animal Companion" by talented 19-year old urban sketcher and illustrator, Ryan Ng. The rising star in Penang's art scene, showcased a series of paintings in which he uses both Western and Eastern art techniques, which results in such attractive artworks. 

Back in 2016, Ryan started doing ballpoint pen drawings as a form of therapy which he then decided to share it with art enthusiasts on a Facebook group. He received great responses and was widely recognized by many. That was the starting point for him in pursuing his dream in the field of arts.

He started his journey with the Penang Chapter of Urban Sketchers which brought him to draw outdoors locally as well as in various parts of the world such as Taiwan, US and others. His active participation has allowed him to meet up with many artists and architects from all over the world.

His skillful artworks has also been exhibited in multiple occasions and venues such as the 5-Star St. Regis Hotel Langkawi, Sahabat Alam Malaysia, including mini urban sketching exhibitions held in conjunction with Georgetown Heritage Festival, Penang Art District Spotlight and Art Showdown in China House.

 Apart from that, he has also conducted live Chinese paintings demonstrations alongside his teacher, Rosalynn Teoh who is well known for her Chinese brush paintings at the Penang Chinese Brush Paintings Society's annual exhibition and 35th Malaysian Chinese Cultural Festival. 

Ryan's inspiration comes from his childhood memories of the koi fishes in this father's fish pond. His fascination and love for animals can be seen through his masterpieces.

Here's a recap of the launching of "Animal Companion" which took place on the 1st of August 2019 at G Art Gallery, G Hotel Gurney. The exhibition will be on until the 31st October 2019.
