People say 'money is everything', I couldn't agree more. 

When I first learned about this competition, my mind wandered on how to relate a bank and money to art the best possible way. Such a cliché to just paint a man flashing his wealth or to paint another man showing off his money but talking about man generally. 

I realized one important thing, if money is just as important as what we claimed then what about our heart? Known as the hardest working muscle. The veins, the arteries and the capillaries working together tirelessly from the moment it begins beating without ever pausing to rest. Now that's wealth. 

Just like a bank, such an important institution, circulate 'blood' into our wallet and community. Be where you are, you have your heart with you for you to breathe, same goes to banking institution that we need to survive day in and day out.
