DIGITALISATION - a way ahead for art appreciation
by Siti Syameen Md Khalili

One of the reasons fine artists like Vincent Van Gogh and Glaude Monet became so popular is due to the fact that their work is seen by many.

Starting a REVOLUTION
Izu is on a mission to maket art more accessible to the general public
Compiled by Jacqueline Toyad

"It has always been the perception that art galleries are frequented by the elite. Galleries intimidate those who feel they do not know art and therefore are hesitant to step into one. They feel they don't know how to appreciate it. Through my space, I want to start helping the masses learn to accept art without fear, and to make them more aware of the importance of art."

Creativity in expressing communication woes
By Vivienne Pal

We have forgotten how to be organic in going about things, especially in communicating. We've got the Internet, telephone, e-mail, SMS, the media, but we still make premature and ill judgements, jump to conclusions and have distorted perceptions because we have forgotten the beauty of face-to-face communication."
