Michelle Yap is a professional abstract artist based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. She graduated from Central St Martins College of Arts London with a major in art direction and graphic design. She also completed a degree in interior design from Milan.
Michelle’s passion for her art can be seen in her large scale modern abstracts with vibrant colors and bold strokes, making strong contrast with the white background. Her works are very expressive and fuse western tradition with oriental expressionism. While she likes to experiment with different techniques, she tends to revert to acrylic paint and traditional Chinese ink. Most of her paintings take inspiration from her observations of daily life.
Her works have been sold through exhibitions and galleries to private collectors and hotels in the USA, China, Singapore, Korea, United Kingdom, Malaysia and Dubai.
