The Magnificent Horse Collection.
Kirtanraw has a very unique interpretation of horses. He captures these magnificent animals in a strong stately manner. Some of his paintings feature his characteristic swirls. All of these pieces have been sold.
I got one of Kirtanraw’s Horse paintings when I retired with the wishes of “Ma Tow Kun Seng” which means literally, the horse has arrived and job well done.
Kirtanraw The Artist.
He got A for Art for his Form 3 exams, but his autism ended his further education. His parents were simple people working in government in Kedah. With what they could afford, his father bought him paint, canvas & art materials and even sponsored a short stint with an art teacher 68km away in Penang. His father, Subramaniam, still keeps the 1000+ drawings of Power Rangers. He remembers fondly how his then teenage son was always painting, sitting on the floor.
His father took his own savings and his EPF money to set up a show room in his own house for his son. The artist now has a simple art gallery. He does oil on canvas, and pyrography (fire on word). Most of his painting are created from imagination.
Here is art with a strong memorable, sticky story. The art itself is detailed & deep, and is filled with layers of emotions. Kirtanraw sees something in his beautiful mind and does not stop painting till he has fully expressed his imagination. It is not just a picture but all sorts of imaginable wonders.
Opening Soon | Artisans Digital Mall.
The up and coming Artisans Digital Mall has an Art Gallery for talented artists to share their masterpieces and art collections.
The Coronacrisis 2020 will change the business landscape. Online business presence is increasingly important. 30 of us got together, just before the Movement Control Order (MCO) for a dialogue on social media marketing with Shanker Joyrama CEO of the award winning Orion Digital and its sister company Digital People. It was the start of a collaboration that has now evolved to the soon to be launched Artisans Digital Mall.
We have many Proudly Malaysian Artisans producing exquisite products. Some may not have the digital savvy to conquer social media marketing. Getting and operating a reliable e-commerce platform needs resources and expertise.
We are working pro bono, set up the framework of an artisans digital mall that will be home to 50 artisans, and other local businesses. We curated a simple & affordable online mall to promote the rich array of their products to consumers countrywide.
We are also very grateful to our friends and contacts who came forward to support the Mall with value added services and events for the Mall visitors.
