The Nyonya Garden Mural art at Gusto Cafe, Penang. My brief was to paint something that would teach these people how to respect nature.
Mr Koi represents all the koi fish that were brutally murdered by irresponsible parents who allowed their kids to throw liquid soap and ketchup in the pond at this cafe. The peonies represent the plants that were plucked from their pots while their parents watched and laughed.
“We want to enjoy our lives here without fear of being plucked by strangers ~ sincerely Mr Koi and Ms Daisy.”
I hope this artwork will inspire the parents to teach their children to respect and appreciate nature and the beauty around us.
