Amazingly, I was invited at the first set of program of SM City North Edsa for Chinese New Year Festivities wherein over 100 hand-painted Lanterns will be exhibited by the well-known Chan Lim Family of Artist & Students and they will also, held a Chinese Painting Lantern workshop for selected media bloggers & art enthusiasts.
A grand collection of Chinese Painting Lanterns filled with artistic designs, unique & delicate stroke with elegance that targets Chinese heriditary cultures & traditions.
Featuring, 1000 lantern works of 35 different Artist from Chan Lim Family of Artist & Students that showcase every year in various locations across our country.
Recently, I've found out, that on earliest days of Chinese Culture, Lanterns are entrance-way lightning, it's highly ornamental & decorative in chinese Houses, temples & palaces, it serves as a portable light on gateways .
Also, Lighting a Lantern means "Illuminating the future & giving Birth". A way of mankind to pray for smooth futures and wishes goodhealth for families.
So, I was so delighted and excited for being part of this Chinese Celebration, wherein I met some of Chan Lim Family, who has been actively involved in Chinese Lantern Art for more than Four Decades now.
The Family patriach, Chan Lim Family who shown expertise in Oil & Watercolor Western art in making beautiful and exquisite work of art. Meet Chan Lim Siblings Alex, Felix, Rolex & Jolex, all graduated as Engineers & successful to theif profession.
