    Rather than a sharing session it’s more like artist giving a sermon about public art

    Unfortunately no, I really wanted to go, but sadly, if I were to voice my opinions there, it would only be like sour grapes. He does not think too highly of anyone with little to no influence.

    I’ve talked to mr chor whye before, was not a pleasant experience.

    “He does not think too highly of anyone with little to no influence. I’ve talked to mr chor whye before, was not a pleasant experience.”

    Haha, I agree. He’s the kind that will rub as many shoulders as he can to get what he wants for his own benefits – not the artist. but he will make it look like he is doing it all for the artist.

    Hmmm… anyone surprised that the art competition was not well received even with the lucrative cash prize money?

    Is not the whole purpose of the sharing? To introduce the artists and promote public/urban art, what ever they called it? Otherwise what should they be doing with the sharing session?

    I do recall one part though, Sky was asking Julia how does she gain accuracy when painting big scale without using any projection, arrogantly she answered it’s a secret but later on Caryn koh explained her doodle grid method. Pretty interesting technique. My first time seeing Caryn, she is kind and humble.

    And you rather be a sour grape here in which he has no chance of defending against your statement? I doubt your sincerity.

    Sure @Jeckshen, the sharing session initiated by Can Can Public Art hosted by The One Academy as venue sponsor. Attendance was less than 50% of expected number, it was mixture of various local (Malaysian artists) and students (private colleges and USM), students count was less than 10 people. Some came from as far as Johor and Langkawi.

    Nicole Chang started the session by introducing CCPA and PICAF followed by short lecturing of Penang art history by Lee Khai. Then Sasha Korban (Ukraine) did his presentation followed by Bibichun, Julia, and finished by Caryn. Nicole Chang moderate each artists with questions as they goes. All presenters was given 10min along with open floor QnA.

    After that everyone gets their chance to take pictures with artists and exchange contacts and more intimate level of conversation, though most questions thrown were very technical but non the less it’s an exchange going on.

    At one point Bibichun was announcing this forum to the crowd, Lee Khai pointed out the post of Who Is Tan chor Whye. And I saw Bibichun was having some sort of discussion with Lee Khai as people were slowly leaving the hall.

    So @Garampadah, you could have ask all those questions that you’ve been hearing from here and there. Ask the artists, Nicole Chang, or even Chor Whye himself. Confront and force him to justify, and provides constructive suggestion. Dialogue and debate!

    Would’ve love to join, but sadly I had other urgent matters to attend to, but I appreciate you sharing with us on what happened on the day.

    And when did I say I was sincere or otherwise?
