SI Penang - WahLukis Art Exhibition

An art exhibition was held at the beautiful Blanc, Macalister Mansion (Penang) to showcase a new and unknown local artist WahLukis, in the hope of enabling and empowering her in her endeavour.

WahLukis is a homemaker with five grown-up children who all reside overseas. During the lockdowns, she picked up the paintbrush and started a new hobby, now a career.

HRH Crown Prince and HRH Crown Princess of Perlis graced this event. Established artists Sharon Kow, Choo Beng Teong, Madeleine Ekeblad and other artists also attended the WahLukis Art Exhibition, as did a hundred invited guests.

WahLukis donated 100% of the sale of her paintings at the event to SI Penang. AUD15,000 of WahLukis paintings were sold.

During the WahLukis Art Exhibition, SIP’s Blossom Women Project ladies also held our first meeting with AiSuka to hold basket weaving classes for women belonging to low income families. Material used for these baskets is recycled food packaging. Three classes were subsequently held in October 2022 for some women to learn a new skill through upcycling.
