Love Canvasses Malaysia


I painted this piece in the wake of Malaysia’s 13th General Elections, with the intention of reminding us all that regardless of our differing political views, we are all of the same nationality – Malaysian – and should be cherished.

The tree in this painting is made up of our national flag’s four colors, to symbolize the many races of Malaysia as one body growing out of the same, fertile soil. Our lives, like the colors, overlap each other in many areas.

The pink sky symbolizes what we ought to do. We ought to protect our homeland and nation with love. The tree is made up of diverse colors overlapping each other, and we should protect this tree the way it is with love. Unity is diversity.

Finally, I painted our flag’s crescent and star on the top right corner childishly, to represent childhood innocence and simplicity. May this painting remind us of our lost innocence, and what being Malaysian meant to us when we were children.

The painting is further marked with my insignia as its artist on the bottom right.

In order to send this message out as widely as possible, I am placing this painting up for auction with 70% of proceeds going to charity of the winning bidder’s choice. This means that the winner/buyer gets to choose a charity, and 70% of the painting’s price will be channeled to that charity.

Thank you for your vote of support and bid in advance!

Hi Yvonne,

A meaningful piece of work there! Beautiful colors and the touch of a child wonder.

Hey Evangeline,

Thanks for the positive comment. Yes, I painted it this way deliberately. The colors are created the way they are intentionally. To be vibrant, positive, and optimistic.
