The Temple of Fine Arts in Brickfields is currently holding a group art exhibition. What makes this exhibition entitled Happy Colours so significant is that it is unlike any other art exhibition anyone would have seen because the artists are neither renowned nor popular. In fact, it will involve the works of artists with different degrees of autism.
One of the artists in the Happy Colours show is Andrew Lau who is just a normal boy who likes to draw and paint. At the age of 4, Andrew was diagnosed with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder). Having autistic features, it did not stop him from pursuing his passion in painting and this will be a very interesting show that will showcase his work. Apart from that, there will be 5 paintings which will be auctioned at the Bites of Delights gala performance to raise funds to help the PR4A (Parents Resources for Autism).
The Temple of Fine Arts is a noble project and a sanctuary for the arts which was founded by His Holiness Swami Shantanand Saraswathi to help young Malaysians venture into music and dance where it helps students to learn about the performing arts as well as in music and other artistic expressions through its programmes and events held throughout the year.
