Peter Liew

Peter Liew is one of the most established Malaysian artists in recent times. This is mainly because Peter is very much known for his brilliance in mastering the techniques of oil painting since his early beginnings in the art scene. Born in 1955, Peter hails from Perak where he obtained his Diploma in Fine Art through the iconic MIA (Malaysian Institute of Fine Art).
