Heritage Footprints

To me, the colonial architecture and the rustic shophouses in towns areas are fascinating subjects. I also have a special love for the traditional trades like old provision stalls, coffee shops, roadside bookstands and backlane food corners. For sentimental reasons, bicycles and tricycles/trishaws of Kuala Lumpur, Pulau Pinang and Melaka also occupy a major portion of my paintings. These vehicles carried me to and fro from school during my childhood and I treat these subjects with a sense of nostalgia.
