All Day An Arts Affair at The Atmosphere

Posted by + Suresh + on Sunday, December 29, 2013

Historically, murals have played a big role in beautifying our world and educating the public on the beauty of Art through the expression of drawings and mind blowing creative ideas of an Artist.

Speaking of Murals, Malaysia is no stranger to it, with beautiful Interactive Murals painted by Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic has been transforming the streets of Penang, Malaysia .
These iconic, lighthearted pieces have become enormously popular across the city, where passers by get a kick out of taking photos of themselves immersed in the scene displayed on the wall behind them. 

By fusing the physical world through imagination, Mural is a form makes street art that is realistic yet creative, engaging the public who stop and take in the view. Make it 3D & you get a whole new Art Twist!

Having seen Mural's popping up all over Malaysia, In celebration and appreciation of such creativity of our local artists, The Atmosphere’ has decided to spare their walls and give them an artistic environment as they invite 20 artists to bring life to `The Atmosphere’ with 80 mural artworks. The thematic concept known as`Artsphere 20/8ty’ pays tribute to the 20 talented artists, whose 80 pieces of mural artwork adorn the vicinity, making `The Atmosphere’ the single location with the highest collection of mural art in Malaysia. Talk about high levels of creativity and ideas all under one roof!

Thanks to The Atmosphere, I was invited to the Launch of Artsphere 20/8ty and had a fun filled day out with my fellow Bloggers and Media Friends. Having spent the entire Morning - Evening there, come have a look & see what i unlocked!

                    It was an awesome Launch with the use of Gold Dust & Pop-ing of Confetti on Stage by
                                                        The Special Guest & They were

 Present at the Launch was Mr Tan Meng Seng (Executive Director of Tempo Holdings), Ms Haze Long (Founder of Art Misfits), Tan Sri Datuk Amar (Dr) Haji Abdul Aziz Bin Dato Haji Husain (Non-Independent, Non-Executive Director of the Eksons Corporation Berhad) & Mr Khoo Boo Hian (CEO of Tempo Properties)

The fun filled day At The Launch was filled with various activities such as Christmas Carolling, Mimes, Stilt Walkers, Juggler, Street Dancers, Clowns and Street Magic. In addition to selfies with the art works on the walls and floors, a Polaroid Photographer was available at the event ensuring that you leave with a memento in Polaroid form too!

It was a warm carnival feel and there were awesome performance on stage and around the vicinity.
  The opening was a lovely violin performance by this beauty. "Love is not love, without a violin
                                                                    playing goat"

                                                       The 20 Talented Artists on Stage!

                                  Imagination is like a lofty building reared to meet the sky

                                        Fancy is a balloon that soars at the wind's will

“For it is good to be children sometimes, and never better than at Christmas, when its mighty Founder
                                                            was a child Himself.”
