I'm a 28-year-old photographer and digital artist currently living and running a small creative studio in Cyberjaya (2023). I love how my name Yong literally means "courage" in Chinese, so I decided to combine it with L and create my own unique personal brand name.
You see, my love for drawing and art had begun when I was a little kid, and I soon discovered that photography was the fastest way to bring my creative visions to life.
Let me tell you a little about how I work. I'm always experimenting with different skills and techniques to create my works because I'm all about evolving and improving over time. That's what keeps me fresh and inspired!
And let me tell you a little secret - it's not about the fancy software or tools you use, but the people behind the tools and their skills, creativity, and knowledge. At the end of the day, it's all about the ideas that come from the heart and soul.
Represented in YONGL's logo, our mission is to inspire and be the lightbulb that paves the way for the next generation of Malaysian creatives in the local creative industry. We strive to subvert the cultural norm and stereotypical perception of art in Malaysia by spearheading the creative endeavors of digital art creations combining fantasy and reality.
