artwork submitted for Maybank 50 years Art Exhibition
theme Expressions of the Malayan Tiger 2010
to exhibit at Balai Seni, Menara Maybank, Kuala Lumpur.


Currently 10 years into the millennium, the world is now at a super fast pace, everything is evolving per millisecond including Maybank and its services.

With its online services everything can be done within a click thus the two triangle on my piece symbolizes 'the-fast-forward' button.

While we are chasing to be at the top, yet we must remember the past that brought us to the future.

Trough the black and gold the background, I attempted captured the qualities of the majestic Malayan tiger as per the theme reflections of Strength, Vigour and Elegance.

The Red in the piece means Stop or rather - We should stop all the killings! There are fewer than 5,000 wild tigers in the world and only about 500 are left in Malaysia, a sharp decline from an estimated 3,000 in the 1950s.

The Green is a sign for Go! Or Lets start going green to save the forest. We should now recycle, reuse and reduce!

The dripping black wax with gold base represents the tears due to pollution that sooner or later will destroy our ancient treasures, the air, water and earth, if we do not act now!
