In numerology, the number 7 is thought
to be one of the most psychic and mystical numbers.
It is often referred to as the spirtiual number. The
number 7 also signifies intellect and
an introspective, analytical mind. It suggests the need
to think deeply. 7 is also said to
be sacred, and this is evident by these facts - the
universe consists of 7 planets (which
you can see through naked eyes), there are 7 seas and 7 continents on planet Earth,
there are 7 days in the week, 7 colours in a rainbow, 7 wonders of
the world, 7 chakras, 7 notes in the musical scale, and the list goes on.
The evolution of galleriiizu has been greatly influenced
by the mystical number 7. For galleriiizu,
number 7 intertwines with many 7 facts as well. The founder, Izuldin Hani, was born on 7th July (7.7)
and he’s a 7th child in a sibling
of 9. It took him 7 years to open his
first public gallery and galleriiizu have been moving
from place to place 7 times. (Galleriiizu
started way back in 1998 in a small villa unit in Bukit
Antarabangsa then moved to Titiwangsa, Bukit Tunku –
branch out to Tamarind Hills (Ampang), Ole Café
(Changkat Bukit Bintang), Menara Standard Chartered
(Jalan Sultan Ismail) and now in UOA Centre. Coincidentally,
there are 7 sections that display various
art forms at galleriiizu. Countdown to “The Big 7”
