DO you know that art can be good for us?
It has the potential to improve people’s wellbeing and aid stress recovery.
Creating and observing art has also been known to encourage both creative and positive thinking, boost self-esteem, and increase feelings of tolerance, empathy and love.
In other words, you can be a more productive person by making art the centre of your life and home.
One of the easiest ways to bring good energy into your home is with vibrant images — nothing accompanies your personal photos at home best like the right piece of art.
Thrill your walls with stunning canvas prints or paintings by independent artists and designers from around the world.
Not only will you be inspired everyday and in entirely new ways, you also can turn your home into a gallery!
You don’t have to waste your time or money on cliche home decor to make your home beautiful, as picking the right artwork can do it just right.
There are many Malaysian artists whose work is impressive and more than entertainment.
If you want to look at some of their work, visit Galeri Prima Balai Berita in Bangsar.
Galeri Prima, in collaboration with Henry Butcher Art Auctioneers, has an ongoing art exhibition, aptly dubbed MORPHOSIS, which will be ending this Sunday.
This exhibition, open daily from 10am to 6pm, tugs the strings of patriotism through a series of artworks by a cohort of 88 local artists, demonstrating their interpretation of the country’s transformation, from the early days of Independence in 1957, till the wake of new Malaysia, post-14th General Election.
According to Henry Butcher, MORPHOSIS endorses a space that pay homage to emerging artists as well as veterans of the field all in one place where 88 artworks are displayed at the gallery.
“MORPHOSIS features art pieces that give a voyeuristic take because it demonstrates the personal views of these artists on the past and present political and sociological climate in Malaysia,” it said.
The anchor piece of the exhibition, “Dirgahayu Negaraku — Susah Payahnya Membina Negara” by Ismadi Salehuddin, depicts how it is to build this country.
There are also interesting artwork by Ng Foo Cheong (Yellow Forces), Azizan Paiman (Cekap & Amanah) and Hoe Say Yong (Undulate).
Relax and be inspired!
