Starting this week we are beginning a new editorial project that I hope you’ll enjoy: we choose an interesting and intriguing event and we attend it, document it and try to show it to you in the most sincere way. Our first, for this week, is the KLIA 2 Photo and Painting Exhibition.
I got the chance to see it right before my flight to Bangkok on Friday evening and can definitely say that it was worth it. The expo presents first, right at the entrance, a series of paintings full of colour that remind me of the Indian Colour Festival that I attended this year but the big difference is that, instead of people dancing with colours you see…fish painted in all possible possible nuances.
Behind the paintings you will find photos from traditional Malay photographs that promote festivals such as Thaipusam and right next to them you can see travel and landscape pictures that show you once more that the place where you live in has a paradise side that is almost overwhelming. You will discover portraits also, nature, a lot of street photography but why don’t I show you a glimpse of what you can still see.
The expo is open until 26 July and it gives you a good feeling right before you catch a fast flight to never-land
KLIA2 in collaboration with Zhi Long Shen, National Visual Arts Gallery (Balai Seni Visual Negara) and Street 2 Street (Street to Street Malaysia) bring to you the works of talented Malaysian Painters and Photographers.
Who are the artist? Come and See.
