IT'S ART JIM, BUT NOT AS WE KNOW IT
By STEVEN PATRICK and JO TIMBUONG

Art in the 21st century is evolving with the advent of cutting-edge digital technology. But is this evolution welcome?

Masterpiece revealed

ON March 16, HSBC Bank Malaysia Berhad auctioned off a work by leading local artist Jalaini Abu Hassan for charity.

This is the intriguing painting (pic) he created when Kuala Lumpur’s Galleriiizu engaged him to create a piece based on the theme, “Malaysia: 50 Years of Growth” for the bank.
