Max Kong graduated from RMIT Univeristy, Australia with a degree in Fine Arts and a Masters of Fine Arts Degree from LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore.
Max focuses on the strategy of 'how to paint' instead of 'what to paint'. His abstract painting investigates the notion of speed in relation to his customization of tools and mediums. One of which is challenging the paradigm of conventional painting by exploring alternative methodologies and materials through the metaphysical involvements in painting.
In addition, the elements of chance and its aesthetics, Max constructs surfaces that constitutes to the process of painting.
