Born in 1985, Mandy Maung (also fondly known as MāMa) is a self-taught full-time painter and illustrator from Penang, Malaysia. After completing her studies majoring in graphics & multimedia design, she began her career pursuing her passion for fine art and mural paintings.

Known for visually articulating the peculiarities of the human emotions, features and figures, Mandy’s artistic direction is deemed progressive. She dives deep into local and foreign subcultures, personal narratives and current events and emerges with her modern take on the deeply traditional genre of fine art — using oil as her preferred medium of choice. Her painting style also varies in influences from traditional art to the current approach of using different techniques as well as mixed media.
