I was at the Historical City of Malacca yesterday when an artist admitted “My life is my canvas” when asked by a visitor to his art gallery along Heeren Street. In an apparent easy question “Are you an artist?” he has transformed the answer to a life philosophy! I was equally astonished as I eavesdropped their conversation. I thought decorating one’s life would be an enormous objective let alone painting them on canvas!
He was so confident as he answered that, followed by laughter from all around! I thrown myself into thinking hard how a simple answer like that could be so deep!Have I painted something appealing on my canvas? Have you?
