About Michelle Yap

I am a professional abstract artist based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I graduated from Central St Martins College of Arts London .

My passion for fine arts allowed me to express art in a very bold way. I love to experiment with various art techniques.

​I love to paint large scale modern abstract with vibrant colors and bold strokes. Making strong contrast with the white background. My works are very expressive and carries a hint of oriental art. Painting with heavy brush strokes on textured paint. I enjoy using acrylic and traditional ink. Most of my paintings feature inspirational and motivational fine arts portraying daily lives. I sell my works to commercial galleries, hotels and private collectors in USA, Shanghai, Paris, Germany, Singapore, Korea, London, Malaysia and Dubai.
