Today, Facebook reminded me of an article I wrote for Philippine Star (a local newspaper in our country) way back in 2009. It’s a very timely reminder related to Langkawi Art Biennale 2016.
That was the first time I got connected to ArtMalaysia founder, Mr. Liew Kian Yap and other international artists. Even then, I witnessed Mr. Liew’s passion for the arts and his commitment to encourage other artists toward this shared goal of using art for global social transformation: art that is highly responsive to current issues affecting mankind.
Thanks to Mr. Liew’s efforts to keep ArtMalaysia going. We appreciate his efforts in initiating art events like Art Biennales in Malaysia and connecting international artists from all over the world.
I thank God for allowing me to be part of Langkawi Art Biennale 2016 and am looking forward to more of these.
