What do you think about Mishell Leong: 2018 Botanical Series: An ode to my Hometown?

The Inspiration behind this series

Mishell Leong is a self-taught artist who is based in Singapore. She grew up in Malaysia, in a suburb town called Subang Jaya – surrounded by beautiful palm trees, luscious banana plants and magnificent Bougainvillea trees.

She seeks to evoke the nostalgia of her childhood and imprints from her daily walk to and home from school…skipping along the broken stoned path with tufts of uncut grass, jumping over puddles, stopping to observe a dragonfly or a flower… these are fond memories that she only realised started to serve her now as she enters into her fourth decade of life.

Each painting in this series is an expression of emotion and these memories - languid evenings spent playing “masak-masak” (cookery) in the gardens behind her home under the magical pink and purple sunset sky.

This year, Mishell has dug deep into her soul and come up with a completely new collection that is a mix of expressionist, contemporary as well as abstract pieces.

Her biggest piece, titled  “The Path Home”, is filled with layers and layers of textures and amazing combination of colours that will most likely blow your mind and heart when you see it in real life.

About Mishell the Artist

Mishell’s artist journey started approximately six years ago, when she was called to paint a recurring dream. Since then, she has been commissioned to create paintings for many children and families around the world including London, New York, Vienna, Switzerland and Singapore.

“Where is the Bee?”

Mishell loves hiding little bees in her bigger paintings – which is something that has now become part of her signature thing. Her young and adult collectors love looking for the bees that she hides all over her often very-detailed paintings.

Mishell chose to champion the bee because of the important role it plays in the environment and for the survival of our planet.

Mishell is quite the inspiration. She has delighted art lovers for years with her bold strokes and luscious imagery. The colour combinations used are always vibrant and confronting. Excellent works of art for large rooms and just as appropriate for smaller rooms that need articulation. She is a warm hearted person and has all the time in the word to talk with you and discuss her vision and inspiration. I wish Mishell all the best at this next incarnation of Affordable Art Fair in Singapore
