About

Bo&Friends by Kamwei Fong

ABOUT THE ARTIST, KAMWEI
Kamwei's animal-themed art centres on a goldfish named Bo, and a series of furry animal illustrations known as The Furry Thing. His work carries a sense of playfulness and an optimistic outlook on everyday life, with "Be Happy. Be Childlike. Be Ridiculous" as the core spirit of his creations. The philosophy has resonated amongst fans, buyers and collectors, who happily display his art in their homes across Asia, Europe, and the US. Kamwei's work has also appeared in collaborations with local and international brands and art collectives. His creations are often described as poetic, humourous, imaginative, playful and dream-like.

Since founding Bo&Friends in 2010, Kamwei has been invited to exhibit at an array of events, including Kuala Lumpur Design Week and George Town Festival. In 2017, he held his first solo exhibition in Malaysia, followed by a second solo exhibition in Paris. Kamwei was also the first Malaysian artist to be invited to hold a solo exhibition at Isetan The Japan Store’s Free Art Space in Kuala Lumpur. An installation of his Paper Bo artwork is on permanent display at KLPAC (Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre) and was also installed at Colorplan’s official launch in Malaysia. Currently, his art prints and ceramic sculptures can be found in Galerie Club Sensible in Paris.

ABOUT THE FURRY THING
The Furry Thing is a series of furry animal illustrations. The first piece Kitty No.1 was inadvertently created in 2009.

Using only black micro pigment ink, Kamwei has created a menagerie of playful kitties, doggies and other animals. Despite their contextual isolation and uniform style, each of Kamwei’s cats display unique personalities: some are fluffed and puffed into self-contained balls; others look with curiosity or wariness at fish that dangle or waves that crash from the animals’ own tails. The artist builds each feline form using innumerable short thin lines, varying the density of the marks to create volume as well as a palpable sense of furriness.
