chi too  
   
 
 

chi too (b. 1981, Kuala Lumpur) is a self-taught multidisciplinary artist whose education background is in Mass Communication and Sound Engineering. His practice demonstrates confident exploration of humour, satire, and visual poetics. It is at times difficult to say exactly what he does as an artist, largely because his artworks touch on a large spectrum of themes and issues. His practice vacillates between the high-minded and the frivolous, the social and the personal, the transparent and the esoteric.

He has held five solo exhibitions to date: Sometimes When We Touch, OUR ArtProjects, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (2018); Like Someone In Love, Lostgens' Contemporary Art Space, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (2015); The Artist chi too Looks at Artworks as He Contemplates the State of the Nation's Institutions a.k.a. How Can You Be Sure, Art Row @ Publika, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (2013); State of Doubt: Seven Actions Towards Dilemma, Art Lab AKIBA, Tokyo, Japan (2012); and Longing, Black Box, MAP @ Publika, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (2011). He has participated in OPEN GATE 2017, Sapporo International Art Festival, Japan, OPEN GATE 2016, Aichi Triennale, Japan, and OPEN GATE 2015, Hin Bus Art Depot, Penang, Malaysia. His work, Longing #11 a.k.a Instructions for Longing was also included in the 2013 Singapore Biennale exhibition If the World Changed. He became a Nippon Foundation Asian Public Intellectual (API) fellow in 2011. Most recently, he was an artist-in-residence at NTU Centre for Contemporary Art (NTU CCA) Singapore in 2017.

In his free time, chi too serves refreshing beverages and works in the arts and television.
