Wong Loi Sing, Michael Ricardo Pierre
(1968, Paramaribo)
Minerva Academy, painting/drawing, Groningen, 1998-2000

Michael Wong Loi Sing studied at the Centro andres Bello and took lessons with Klas. More important, however, was the influence of his father and his brothers. Emotion governs his painting and he instinctively seeks his own visual idiom, experimenting with materials and techniques. He succeeds in producing remarkable works, sometimes working in extremely small format. His work is figurative and often makes use of double images.
