"Hey girl watcha doing up there?" Louis Gan fools around with a mural of his creation. (14 November, 2012)
Louis Gan is a deaf-mute self-taught artist from Penang. According to his brother Yee Chun, Louis was born deaf because his mother had German measles when she conceived him.
Today Louis is a freelance artist. He uses watercolor and acrylic as his preferred medium, but would be keen to explore doing oil paintings from time to time. Louis gained local attention after he painted the mural Brother and Sister on a Swing. This came about when the owner of SBS (Sin Ban Seong) Paper Press asked him to paint the back wall of the printing factory. He learned about Louis after The Star and Kwong Wah featured the young artist.
The following are some of the murals by Louis Gan:
