This oil painting of a bathing scene by Cheung Pooi Yip represents his early work which often portray hills, villages, rivers as well as human daily activities and lifestyles. Born in 1936, he is a self-taught but extremely prolific and spontaneous artist who dares to experiment and expresses his creativities in a wide range of artistic styles. He was motivated by fellow artists and renowned masters and these influences led him to develop unique expressions of his own. His favourite media are oil and acrylic. In 2014 he was honoured by the Penang State Art Gallery with a Retrospective Exhibition.
