About Me

Don’t Do Art when you are Ready; do when you are Not.

Hello. I’m Joey Kher.

I believe Art can help us to discover the beauty of compassion, kindness and love. Batik is my favourite medium.

Born in Batu Pahat but grew up in Sabah, my childhood memories was filled with emotion and meaning and it had shaped my interests in art. After graduated from art school (Central Academy of Art, Kuala Lumpur) in 2004, and worked for fashion brands for 10 years in several countries, producing handbag designs and managing brands operation until I pursued my working artist life in 2015, I transformed an old campus “Viana Music & Ballet Academy” to “VIANA ACADEMY OF ART” and launched my first SOLO Art Exhibition “After Dreams: Deconstruct the Lights”.

I started my Batik journey in 2009 and received recognition in Piala Seri Endon (1st prize winner in Handicraft) in year 2019.
