The Dusky leaf monkey for LangUR art Exhibition in Penang.

Dusky leaf monkey painting for LangUR Exhibition

Golden Hour πŸ’› β­πŸ’›
Acrylic and gold leaf on canvas
Size: 76 x 61 cm

It is a privilege to be showing at the Penang State Art Gallery for  LangUR: Building Bridge Between Our Worlds art exhibition curated by Ivan Gabriel for the Penang State museum to raise awareness of our Endangered Dusky Leaf monkeys and to raise funds for the Langur project Penang.

I’ve been intrigued by these monkeys ever since the first time I spotted them hiking up Penang Hill. It used to be rare to spot them as they are very shy and they live in the deep forest, but in recent years, they have become easier to spot as they have been flushed out of the forest into the urban landscape.
They give birth to golden babies which stay golden for about 6 months. It is believed that they are golden orange because predators can’t see this colour and works well as a form of camouflage.
It works so well that I have never spotted a golden baby. All my friends know how much I want to see one in the wild and I do hope I get to see one soon.
In this artwork, The mother and baby langur sits on a tree branch in a meditative pose at sunset, surrounded by the lush tropical rainforest, with the racket tailed drongo watching over them, and a butterfly in the distance.
My artwork is inspired by my encounters with the langur troops, the desire to see a golden baby and my dreams and hopes for a better world.

Healthcare heroes virtual exhibition on Google arts and culture

https://artsandculture.google.com/asset/prof-janice-tsui-tiffany-choong/nQGJeG7Cv6C2ZA

I am extremely proud to be part of this permanent online exhibition on Google arts and Culture made possible by award winning artist Tom Croft in partnership with Google arts and culture and Paintings in Hospitals.
The virtual exhibition is to put faces on the healthcare heroes who are risking their lives every single day, keeping us safe during this difficult time.
During lockdown, like many people, I felt extremely helpless and anxious. When I found out about this project I wanted to be part of it, but I hesitated for a long time because portraits is not what I do. I managed to get over myself eventually and painted a portrait of my friend Professor Janice Tsui. She is an amazing person and she inspires me with her dedication to her work.
Thank you for giving me permission to submit your portrait for this exhibition. πŸ’•

Check out the virtual exhibition in the link below. My submission is under the section ‘Personality in PPE’

Ping ping the Panda

Ping ping the baby Panda

I started painting baby animals after i painted my first baby sunbird born on my balcony in mid March. Around the same time, I read in the news that a pair of panda twins were born in Chengdu zoo. It inspired me start a series of baby animals born during lockdown. This is Ping ping the baby panda. The name means Safe in  Chinese.

This is the first portrait I painted during lockdown as a push out of my comfort zone of not touching this subject. If you have been following me for a while, you would have seen that last year I started on some portraits but put them on pause. Admittedly portraits have never been my favourite subject but as a challenge to my own artistic growth, I decided to give it another try, and this time round, it’s been a massive breakthrough as I am enjoying them, and as you know, my art has to bring my joy
Wishing all of you, my friends, a Happy weekend, a happy strawberry full moon and to new beginnings πŸŽ‘ πŸ“ πŸŒ•
