At the age of 33, Ch'ng Huck Theng is the ypungest founder and member in ArtGrup Penang. Author of ' The Surviving Pieces' and ' The Migrating Figuriness', Ch'ng is one fortuitous artist in the story of Malaysian art. Trained under an Australian bush scenery artist, Alan Upton, in the mid 1990s, he believed that the canvas is the depository of his internal monologue by combining his love for antiques and art. Having exhibited in a few joint exhibitions with prominent Malaysian artists, he had his first solo in 2002 sponsored by Cartier in Penang and subsequently with Alliance Francaise de Penang two years later.

Ch'ng sees himself as a semi abstract conceptual artist who has a knack of using brush devices that are very simple yet still the mind and imagination with uniquely illustrated subject matter.
