Introduction About - Dragon Series

 The Dragon Series is the continuation of Festival Series, The year 2000 happened to be the year of dragon, As an artist, Choong greeted to new millennium with excitement and positive hope. So he used dragon as the motif in his work to greet the new century. He borrowed and reinterpreted the traditional paper cut dragon shape, then incorporate it with a background printed with test taken from a page of the old traditional almanac calendar.  He combined silk-screen test and hand-painted images to express symbolism of dynamic and forwardness manifested by the image of the dragon.

Through the re-interpretation of almanac texts, the shape of legendary  dragon and the application of vibrant colours to manifest the notion that traditional custom still formed an integral part of our (Malaysian Chinese) cultural practice today and the different meanings the dragon symbolized.
