Wei-Ling Gallery, previously known as the Townhouse Gallery was set up by Lim Wei-Ling and Yohan Rajan in a townhouse in  Bukit Bandraya, Kuala Lumpur in May 2002 to showcase the works of contemporary artists in Malaysia.

The gallery represents a wide spectrum of Malaysian artists, ranging from the forefathers of Modernism in Malaysia, to young, up and coming contemporary talents. The focus of the gallery is to nurture their stable of artists, so that they gain both local and international recognition, and to keep collectors abreast about the works they are collecting from both an aesthetic and investment angle. As their main concern is to introduce collectors to works by serious artists with integrity, the gallery is extremely selective about the works and artists it represents. The gallery hosts up to twelve exhibitions a year, showcasing the works of Malaysia’s most exciting artists.

In 2004, Wei-Ling Gallery opened its doors to well-known foreign artists, and has since hosted several international shows at their space. They include solo exhibitions by the revered Cuban artist Nelson Dominguez, the renowned Pakistani sculptor Amin Gulgee, and most recently an exhibition of paintings by the celebrated Australian artist Stewart MacFarlane. It has also held group shows by some of India’s top artists including MF Hussain and Sunil Das.

In February 2007, Wei-Ling Gallery hosted a group exhibition of works by Tasmanian artists, entitled, ’From An Island South’, in collaboration with the Australian High Commission.

Following on from its goal of showcasing contemporary Malaysian art to an international audience, in December 2006, Wei-Ling Gallery embarked upon one of its most ambitious exhibitions  and took the works of 18 of Malaysia’s most progressive, contemporary artists to an exhibition in Karachi, Pakistan. This momentous exhibition, entitled "18@8, Kuala Lumpur-Karachi" was held at  Pakistani sculptor, Amin Gulgee’s gallery space - Amin Gulgee Gallery. The exhibition was the first of it’s kind on many levels.  It was the first time Pakistan had seen such a major show  of contemporary Malaysian art,  and it was also the first time that such a significant show of contemporary Malaysian art had been taken abroad by a private gallery.

In April 2008, Wei-Ling Gallery became the first Malaysian gallery to participate in China International Gallery Exposition (CIGE), a prestigious international art fair which focuses on global contemporary art.

The Gallery has been fortunate to work closely with numerous corporations and organizations who have supported and encouraged it in achieving its goals.
