UEM Sunrise unveils nature-themed mural in KL

KUALA LUMPUR: UEM Sunrise Bhd has unveiled its nature-themed mural,“Happy Space at Lot 149’, adorned with colours of the local landscapes and its rich biodiversity.

In a statement, the property developer said the mural, located next to W Hotel at the junction of Jalan Ampang and Jalan P. Ramlee and adjacent to KL

City Centre was expected to add a splash of colour, showcasing Malaysia’s natural beauty in contrast to the concrete jungle of Kuala Lumpur.

UEM Sunrise teamed up with local artists from E&M Services and Nippon Paint to support Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL)’s ongoing initiative to incorporate local street art into the capital city.

The project started on April 13 April and completed on May 31.

The “Happy Space at Lot 149” consists of seven panels which stretch to more than 150 metres.

UEM Sunrise said each panel displays snapshots of Malaysia’s natural landscapes and biodiversity including the country’s untouched tropical sceneries alongside its flagship development Kiara Bay in Kepong, Aurora in Australia, and the beautiful township of Puteri Harbour in Johor.

For the project, 800 litres of Nippon Paint’s low Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) and eco-friendly paint and 100 litres of low odour wall sealer were used, enough to fill up three standard bathtubs.

UEM Sunrise chief executive officer Sufian Abdullah said: “Happy Space at Lot 149’ represents our commitment to conservation where we strive to preserve our development’s surrounding landscape and its biodiverse habitat.”

“Likewise, part of our sustainable cause is also to contribute to a better society and create a conducive space for the community to thrive. At the heart of it, we are here to create happy spaces and build communities,” he added.

“We hope more people will be able to view our nature-themed mural once the lockdown is lifted and these bright colours can bring about some cheer and optimism that we all need in these challenging times.

“With the National Day just around the corner, it is hoped that this will further inspire city dwellers, especially the youth to not only value our flora and fauna, but to also appreciate art by embedding the vibrant work of our local artists into Kuala Lumpur’s urban fabric,” Sufian said.
