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.
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.
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.
This is last part of my posting for Art Expo Malaysia 2013.
This mix-media art by Mr Lee Kyung-Lim (Korea). Viewing from far, I thought it was made from porcelain (similar to the tile art of the middle east). I was wrong. A closer look revealed that it was made from paper and cupboard.
Every piece of art is like a peeping into the artist’s mind, or learning the message conveyed by the artist.
Some are good to look at without too much thinking.
6,700 performers and participants took part in 2013 edition of “Colours of Malaysia”.
This is an annual event on its 15th instalment since 1999.
News media published 100,000 visitors, but it looked like 10,000+ because the dancers seemed to out numbered the audiences.
Here were some of the excited moments in 2012 where I was lucky to be presence.
Angkor complex, Borobudur and Prambanan and many other ancient sites are worth visiting.
Navarathiri Festival is a 9 days celebration dedicated to the worship of Goddess Shakti.
Special credit to the Malay dancer above who did a splendid performance of the Indian dance.
Many online resources would have elaborate description of this festival (a.k.a Navatri). Central Market is promoting the cultural dance in collaboration with Asthana Arts Kuala Lumpur, and 10 Indian classical dancing schools.
