The Joy of Painting
BY IDC ARCHITECTS KUCHING
@ VOL 6
ON APR 28, 2018
June was only 5 when she held her first paint brush. Encouraged by her father, artist Raphael Scott Ahbeng, she was free to paint anything she wanted from his leftover colours. Colours have the simple ability to evoke feelings of happiness, an idea that she loves. With an illustrative and narrative quality, her paintings are simultaneously comforting and intriguing.
June draws her inspiration and ideas from her travels abroad. But she also hopes to see more budding artists in Kuching as inspiration and subjects are plentiful here. From nature, street life, coastal areas, kampungs to the plants in our backyards, our daily lives can be enriched with colour.
