The exhibition is coming to a close on 10 March 2014 at Komplek Kraf Kuala Lumpur.
The National Craft Day is a 2 weeks festival to host nationwide crafts at Kuala Lumpur.
It is a wonderful event for tourists and families to view many delicate crafts and foods in one place.
The Gardens (Mid Valley, Kuala Lumpur) decorates Chinese New Year 2014 with retro Shanghai theme.
If you thought that the picture above was taken in an outdoor windows, you could be fooled by the clever lighting.
Many seasonal decorations have designed with the growing selfie and photographer in mind.
Visitor can interact with the deco set and pose with these colourful decos.
Guess who did I meet just now?
If you don’t recognize him, here is another clue? 不是关公。
Looks familiar (besides the red face)?
He is the most popular god during Chinese New Year, the one and only Prosperity God.
Unlike photography, paintings could portrait animal subject with hidden message and creative expression.
A wonderful batik (wax painting) roosters by Mr Chuah Seok Keng. This is more expansive then your ordinary batik fabric.
Another expression of rooster in front of the porcelain staircase (unique architecture in the Malay houses around Melaka).
An interesting piece of illustration (no really animal but a cartoon character). If one couldn’t handle fame, they could use unhealthy channel to release stress. Hello Kitty is deflated and totally passed out.
Paintings about fantasy or fictitious subjects are often wildly creative.
We have a brief chat with Mr Omar Ramos (a.k.a. Whooop, from Philippines). He drew this piece of artwork during his visit in Malaysia. You can see the KL Tower on the right, 3 major races soaring in the sky, with the moon + star (core symbol of Malaysian national flag).
If you like to meet Whooop in person, he will be drawing at Publika next weekend (28 September 2013).
I read more comic books than text books during my childhood. I am hooked to the beautiful illustration and the wild storyline that broke all the laws of physics.
Art Expo Malaysia is held at MATRADE Exhibition & Convention Centre again, from 19 to 22 September 2013.
You will be greeted by few booths showcasing sculptures and statues near the entrance. My favourite is the Spain both. The incredible series is by Jesus Curia (also showcased in Art Expo Malaysia 2012).
I regretted not allocating more time so that I can find better angle or can wait for the crowd to pass. To illustrate this point, here is one artwork by Curia.
Below is the same sculpture viewed from different angle.
Human subject is always intriguing subject.
The more interesting aspect is how the creativity of the artist position the human subject with other object or scenario.
From cockroach to gold fish.
