Artwork Description
For me, this song represents a deep and lasting reflection of a past relationship. This song accompanied me for quite a while after the end of a nine-year relationship. While the lack of trust, intolerance, and frequent arguments in this relationship wore me out, the experience also taught me to overcome and express myself maturely henceforth. Reflecting this experience in my painting, the colours of blue (representing coldness) and pink (representing warmth) represents the ever-shifting balance of any relationship: a dance between love and hate.

About The Artist
I was born in a small town in Malaysia called Batu Pahat. After dropping out of school at age16, I didn't know what I wanted to do at the time until I met my mentor. He encouraged me to do some design-related work since I had a passion for art and music. And so, I went to Kuala Lumpur hoping to get a design job. However, things don't always turn out the way one expects. I ended up working in a colour separation company as an apprentice. In those 4 years in Kuala Lumpur, I met a lot of music-loving friends who were very much into indie music. From there, I explored different kinds of music genres and gained a true appreciation for design. That was really a magical time! I even got an opportunity from one of my friends to work in Singapore as a designer in 1997, and that's how I've gotten to where I am today. I'm currently working as a senior graphic designer cum editor in a kid's publication.
