Self taught illustrator Tang Yau Hoong was born in (and is currently based in) Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.  He loves to play with negative space and use illusions in his minimalistic illustrations.  Since 2007, he has been a freelance artist working with clients around the world.  He has created artwork for editorial and advertising purposes, t-shirts, posters, book covers, and more.

Tang Yau Hoong is a visual artist/graphic designer. I just love all of his works that I've seen so far. He is a genius when it comes to negative space. The way he uses negative space is just so brilliant.
