Wuan and I enjoy Numpueng‘s colourful paintings very much. The first time we viewed them were at her joint exhibition with Victor Chin at the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (KLPac) last year. They were of butterflies, stars and flowers in a multitude of bright and happy colours. Those paintings were surefire ways to brighten up even the dullest of rooms.

Numpueng is currently holding the third series of her acrylic on canvas paintings exhibition at the foyer of Pentas 2 at KLPac. This time, there is a horse, cows, pigs, teddy bear, trains, flowers, butterlies and bees – all in the same jovial and colourful style. The exhibition is open from 10am to 10pm and will end on December 6. Wuan and I were there yesterday. We really liked the cow series but it was already sold. At least we Wuan took some photos of these very cute cows.

Numpueng and Victor also hosted a small party for friends and visitors by the small pond outside the KLPac building. Like the paintings, the party was fun with kids, who are Seenum‘s friends, scampering all over the place. Seenum is Victor and Numpueng’s son. I got breathless just watching the kids at play. This must surely come with age.

With Victor Chin And Numpueng At KLPac

November 12th, 2008 - Wednesday

Right after my presentation at the 2nd Malaysian Conference on Rehabilitation in Bangi on Saturday, Wuan and I went to the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (KLPac) in Sentul. My good friend Victor Chin and his wife Numpueng were exhibiting their acrylic on canvas paintings there. I also got the opportunity to meet some of Victor’s friends. One of them was photographer and fellow blogger Paul Choo. Paul was there to shoot the event.

Victor and Numpueng hosted a picnic for guests outside KLPac just by the lake. The blue sky was partially shrouded by fluffly white clouds. It was breezy too. I enjoyed myself thoroughly just by taking in the serene sights of the lake and the greenery, and listening to Victor sharing with us the processes involved in the creation of the paintings.

Both exhibitions are opened daily from 10am to 10pm and will end on November 30. For more information, contact Victor at 016 2680258 or email him at vicchin[at]gmail[dot]com.

Victor Chin’s Pulau Perhentian

November 3rd, 2008 - Monday

My good friend Victor Chin is holding an exhibition of twenty abstract acrylic paintings on canvas inspired by his stay at Pulau Perhentian back in 2002. This exhibition at Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (KLPac) began earlier today and will end on November 30. At the same time, his wife Numpueng is also exhibiting thirty of her acrylic paintings on canvas at the same venue.

Wuan and I had sneak previews of their paintings the few times that we visited Victor and Numpueng at their home. That was the first time we were up close to artistic pieces like these. I was impressed by Victor’s colour play in his paintings one of which reminded me of fresh tuna fillet. Yes, sad to say, my appreciation of good art is as shallow as my appreciation for fine dining.

Both the exhibitions are opened daily from 10am to 10pm. At 4pm on September 8, there will be a walk through of the exhibition with the artists. For more information, contact Victor at 016 2680258 or email him at vicchin[at]gmail[dot]com.
