About

Mok Yee

Born in Klang, Malaysia

Lives & works in Kuala Lumpur

As an artist, he believes that existing materials whether physical or conceptual reflects his own culture and political background. Using these materials, he attempt to interpret and reconstruct the characteristic and utility of the objects.


He strongly believe that art and society are interconnected and it’s not essential to be highly technically to express once self in art.


In 2012, Muji had his first solo exhibition “Scepticism is a Virtue” at Artseni Gallery. He has also exhibited internationally in London, Korea and Germany.
