S.Amin Shahab ^^
Mmm, have u heard of S.Amin Shahab? I admire him so much and for me, he is one of the greatest local painter! I was so happy to bump into him IN REAL LIFE instead of seeing him on the newspaper all the time! Wow, he was just so friendly~ after a lil’ of chit-chatting, Amin, a somebody, is giving me, a nobody, his phone/ email contact! Well, allow me to introduce him here, as I not sure if all of u guys know bout him. He is the one who is actually painting the whole world in a 1km long canvas; government supports him by paying for all his trips expenses around the world, he uses pen drawing for the longest canvas, his canvas is sponsored by National Art Gallery and his pens are sponsored by Artline too! Cool right? His drawing journey around the world is recorded in Malaysia Book of Records and subsequently in the Guinness Book of World Records! Well, I think there should be people who wonder why would government spending money on this etc? for me, im really proud of him and somehow I wish I can have such achievements in drawing too… just day dreaming hehe… I have my paintings being sold at a small gallery once upon a time… but I no longer have the time to paint so much d =( and I guess I already stop venturing into the drawing journey… For Amin, life is a dream, he is living for himself and his life is all surrounded by art, literature, he is a song writer/lyricist who portrays evolution and civilization too, he is traveling so far to create the awareness in art, especially to the young individuals, who have high adoration towards materialism and ignore the aesthetics of the “soul”… he hopes that his journey/ mission shall unite people through the beauty of art. Whatever he sees or knows will be documented on canvas using black pen for a distance of 1km.
Talkin’ bout the ups and downs of life =P
haha we never know that we have the same poses till we see this picture ^^
Amin and his 1km world~
Till now, He is still out there on his soul-searching endeavor… by himself. Lets support him together my dear frenz… ^^
