Urban Sketchers / Urban Sketchers Beijing / Winsor & Newton China
This is my second solo exhibition in Kuala Lumpur after the first one in 2012. I feel very honoured to be invited by Oriental Art and Cultural Center to showcase my recent “non-architecture” sketches bearing the theme Close Objects – which are common objects or small things in my surroundings. I started this series with some botanic / plant sketches four years ago and realised that the beauty of nature is incomparable with any man-made buildings.
I thus themed it “Close Objects” than “still life” as the objects I have depicted are not deliberately designed for painting. They are the little things common to me such as: corns bought from the market, dried bamboo roots collected from the seaside, withered trees by the roadside etc.
Beauty is everywhere near you; you just need to observe with all your heart.
