7 Masters, 7 Mediums, 7 Philosophies, 7 Statements, 7 Mysteries, 7 Challenges, 7 Sections
In pursuit of the spirit of number 7, 7 masters, 7 up and coming artist, 7 digital artist, 7 designers, 7 different types of art work will be created, all highly imaginative, well-established, and award-winning artist. These art pieces will feature a unifying 7 themes throughout its 7 sections, interpreted by each artist in their own narrative, thought-provoking, striking and unconventional manner.

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

The 7 exhibition that was launched on 7 December 2005 marks the first of its 7 series. Every month, beginning on the 7th of course, galleriiizu will feature one local artist in one of the 7 sections in the gallery. These monthly exhibitions are actually a countdown to The Big 7 that will take place on 7 July 2006. Watch out for this event as there will be a BIG, BIG Celebration!
