A CHARITY fan art exhibition was organised to bring out the artistic talents of children aged five to 15 and also preserve Malaysian heritage while embracing external cultures with the theme “Frozen 2 comes to Malaysia”.
Ten winners were chosen for each of the four age categories consisting of gold, silver and bronze as well as seven consolation prizes.
The winners brought home a trophy, certificate of excellence and Frozen 2 movie premiums as well as creative products.
Other than the children’s artwork, the exhibition saw works by promising local artists.
They included autistic savant artist Wan Jamila Wan Shaiful Bahri, also known as artjamila, and Lyn-Hui Ong who was commissioned by Netflix to produce a poster for the series Stranger Things.
The exhibition was launched by Damansara MP Tony Pua.
“I think it is important to discard the stigma that you will not make enough money as an artist because I have seen many successful young artists, ” he said.
More than 100 pieces of fan art were exhibited alongside the works made by professional guest artists for the charity sale.
All proceeds will go to Persatuan Kebajikan Kanak-Kanak Kurang Upaya Subang Jaya to develop a resource centre in supporting and empowering children with disabilities.
The exhibition was organised by Da Vinci Creative Kids, a children’s arts and crafts school founded by The One Academy.
The exhibition’s launch and prize-giving ceremony was held at The Ledge, 1 Utama Shopping Centre. — By HANIS SOFEA ZULKIFLI
