Beyond Cultural Differences

Honorable Mention

by: Lim Dang Chii, Air Itam, Malaysia

Artist Statement

My country, Malaysia, embodies the very essence of embracing differences. We live a harmonious and peaceful life because of our common sharing of cultures and mutual love of one another. Our community shows not just the beauty of differences, but also the brilliance and harmony of them. My painting sees the loving union of an Indian girl (East) and a cowboy (West). It’s a love which surpasses all cultural differences. All that matters is the heart. A heart that cares, is understanding, receptive and, above all, loving.
