    Cheong Soo Pieng often incorporated Cubism and geometric abstraction into his ink paintings. In 'Kampong Landscape', the vertical lines of the kelong stilts are abstracted into an almost grid-like pattern. The influence of Chinese calligraphy is also evident in his rhythmical lines and washes. See his other similar Nanyang landscapes in Yeo Wei Wei ed. Cheong Soo Pieng: Visions of Southeast Asia, The National Art Gallery, Singapore, 2010, plates 233, 237-238 and 242.
