Love Canvasses Malaysia

Introduction

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!

简介

马来西亚第十三届大选之后,我创作了这幅作品,以此提醒大家,不管彼此之间的政治观念有何不同,我们还是同个国家的人民——马来西亚人。

画里的树由国旗里的四个颜色组成,以象征马来西亚的多元种族是在这国家肥沃的土地一起生长的。我们的生活,就好像画里的颜色,不管在任何方面,都少不了彼此。

粉色的天空象征着我们应该做的事,那就是用爱保护我们的国家。而在粉色天空下多彩的树,象征着我们应该以爱来维持种族之间的和平。殊途同归,团结就是力量。

最后,我以稚气的方式把国旗中的新月与星星画在画的右上角,诠释着童年时的天真和单纯。希望这幅画让我们忆起失去的纯真,和在我们小时候对身为马来西亚人的定义。

此外,作品上的右下角标记着我身为艺术家的徽章。

为了能广泛地向大众发送此讯息,这幅画将会被拍卖,而70%的所得款项将捐献给中标者所选择的慈善机构。这意味着中标者/买方可以选择一个慈善机构,而这作品70%的拍卖款项将会被转送到此慈善机构。

谢谢你的支持以及投标!

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.
