It’s been a while I stopped blogging. I took the the time to compose my thoughts on what my purpose in life. Actually it is not that hard to recognize the problems when you undergo the depression state. What you need is just the time to think through and do some reflection on your life.
Anyways enough of the sad story of life, life still gotta move on.
Today I would like to share and show my gratitude to some people that I’ve met for the past few months.
If you keep track with my earlier post, I think I mentioned that I went through counseling on my depression. And I am glad and grateful that somehow it helps me alot. I would like to say my thanks to Anwar and hetty for being there with me and woke me up from my lala land.
Allow me to emphasize this, I am sharing my stories/experiences not because I want a sympathy from anyone but I really believe every human living in this world will face the same problems and they might have the same solution. The least I could do is to offer some advice.
Lately, I have been active in the art scene. All thanks to Mr Jalal for believing in me and my talent and open up the platform for me to grow and get more exposure in the art scene. He is the one that pulled me to a malay art organization called Angkatan Pelukis Aneka Daya (APAD). From there, I have been participated in many art exhibition and got to know many artist. Such as Mr Ramli, Mr Kamal, Mr suhaimi and many more. If time permits I will compile the pictures of the art shows that I participated individually and blog about it.
So as for now I only gonna briefly share on the exhibition that I have been participated.
My first art exhibition is at NUVE heritage hotel opening with Mr Jalal and other artist.I exhibited my work that I did for an exhibition at National Art Museum singapore under ‘700years:Singapura’. It is a hand drawn sketch of an old trading chinese house in Singapore during the WW2. The Chinese calligraphy was written as ‘the golden twin pagoda’ if im not mistaken.
Then on Sept 28,2017, I participated in RUMPUN which held in BANDUNG. As for this exhibition I exhibited my piece which called ‘ketulusan cinta’ which means the sincerity of love. This artpiece basically just an expression what a love means. The calla flowers representing the purity and sincerity while the background showing the boldness, the strength of love and the meaning of love. It is written in malay language. I will elaborate more when I blog about it later.
After a few months later, I worked on my new artpiece that was exhibited at ION ART GALLERY SINGAPORE, on 22 Dec 2017. As for this artwork I chose to paint a backyard scene. I specifically chose this scene because I noticed only few shop houses that still have this type of spiral staircase. It is hard for us to find a new houses with spiral staircase. And I also love the old and nostalgic feel of it.
So now the forth one, I participated and exhibited my artpieces at KUALA LUMPUR, it is curated by a team of artists that representing the 3 different countries which is Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. This exhibition called IMAGO MUNDI KUALA LUMPUR. For this exhibition, I exhibited my series works that is called ‘Priorities’. It was held at Hulo Hotel on 5 January 2018. This pieces basically shows a movement of a dancer expressing the freedom, the joy and the greatest passion that they pursuing. The colours represent the emotion and the determination of the dancers.
At this exhibition I met with a group of fun, interesting and experience artist and I am glad that I get the chance to know them. They have been given me many advices and through the stories and experiences that they shared. I also learnt a lot in all aspect such as, life, art related stuff, love, fashion trend and many more. And accidentally we were named as ‘geng 44’. I will elaborate more later when I get the chance. But yes I would like to say my thanks to all of in G44 that gives me hope and never stopped motivates each other and care for each other to grow to be a better artist and a person in life. I really appreciate the time we spent and I’m grateful that God has set us to know each other and make us as a team. Allow me to mention the members of G44, Fazelah, Dino, naff, Gazz and Eja! Thanks guys for the friendship!
Anyways, and now I am preparing for my 2 upcoming exhibition which is the first one will be soon, on 10 Feb 2018 @ NUVE heritage hotel, the exhibition called, Space 11,Cloud 9. For this exhibition I’m exhibiting my 2previous pieces which is the backyard scene and the golden twin pagoda.
And the second upcoming exhibition will be on 28 March 2018 @ fairmont hotel at Jakarta. As for this exhibition, I exhibiting my 2 series of bipolar. Basically I chose my cats to be the subject. The painting shows two faced of cats with a different colourful background that directed to the different types of character and emotion. I purposely chose my cats because all of them have a different character and that characters are totally reflected me as a person.
In the past I used to be so curious in everything and I will make myself to try it and experience it. I chose that decision I’ve made and I aware the choices will either ends me up to a bad or good feeling. And yes I have no regrets to making those choices. And that’s the the reasons why I chose my cats as the subject. Like an old saying
Curiosity kills the cats.
And lastly I also would like to both bosses that I worked with in M3 STUDIO. they have been very supportive and understanding and patience enough to entertained my bullshit. Lol. And bosses if by chance u read this blog I really would like to say my deepest thanks to both of u for everything. And I am grateful God set my path to be with u guys as for me to learn from u guys. Its an eye opening for me…
OK as I mentioned earlier I would love to blog and share my journey in the art scene that I’ve been participated. And definitely this will drag me for a long period of time for me to compile them and blog about it. I think it is a good thing!! At least I have a topic to share, rather than the sad stories every single time.
Let me know of what u think about my blog! And if by chance u interested on my artpieces do follow me in my insta @muddmitaq or email me Ya. Wish me luck and may more doors of opportunities opens for me to experience and expose my capabilities and my talents to the world /society!
