A 567-meter mural painting was recently unveiled in Sibu, Sarawak. This was on the wall of Wisma Vasty in Jalan Pulau. The mural was the work of 4 Malaysian artists who are:
- Aries Kong
- Koh Yong Ling
- Taro Hooi
- Jane Zhen
The owner of building is councillor Robert Lau Hui Yew who was all smiles during the launch with a firecracker presentation. Vasty Development, TBS Enterprise Sdn Bhd and Kiong Joung Hardware Sdn Bhd were the sponsors of the project said to cost between RM30,000 and RM40,000.
To help the artists complete the work, a crane was used which used 15 tines of 5-litre paints. They spent more than 12 hours each day to work on this and had to compete with the weather as it was the rainy season where the artists had to use hairdryers to ensure the paint was not spoiled by rain water when it poured.
