YNOT — Spark Your Creativity with Graffiti

When people ask you why graffiti? You answered them Y, NOT?

Good news to all graffiti art enthusiasts — time to spark your creativity with graffiti and stand a chance to win RM40,000 cash and prizes! I attended the launch of the ‘YNOT — Spark Your Creativity with Graffiti’ art competition at IACT College last month.
Talk show with the VIPs — (from left to right) IACT College academic director Nicholas Lee, Vice President of Marketing, Genting Malaysia Berhard, Mr. Chow Wei Heng, art writer and competition judge Ooi Kok Chuen, and Artseni Gallery founder and the competition’s art consultant / judge Philip Wong.

The talk show was indeed interesting, giving me an a whole new insight of what graffiti is all about. It's not just merely an art, it's a way how people express themselves and voice out themselves in a form of art which I find pretty interesting. I've always enjoy looking at the graffiti art at a stretch of the River Klang by Pasar Seni LRT station. 

Mr Chow Wei Heng said, “Graffiti art is getting popular in the country, and there are indeed many talented Graffiti artists out there. We hope by organizing such competition we are able to create a platform to further enhance the appreciation of graffiti and its artists to the general public.” 

A brief explanation on the mechanism of the contest and how the FB app works.
