I found myself at a contemporary art exhibition last weekend on a slippery wet Saturday afternoon. I love painting, sculpture and just about everything that convey truth, raw emotions and vulnerability in the finest form of art. But I'm a writer and not a painter, so I get excited each time I get to see all these elaborate self expressions and organized thoughts beautifully presented for everyone to see. I'll always stop by the tiny little art exhibition that they sometimes have at the shopping malls regardless of whether the art on display is good or not.

I believe it takes a lot of courage for these artists to lay their soul bare when people are judgmental and most of the time too apprehensive about certain issues like pre-marital sex, homosexuality, feminism and culture clash.

And these are just some of the provocative thoughts largely on display for everyone to see at Malaysia Contemporary Art Tourism Festival at Matic Jln. Ampang.

Feast your eyes. And let’s not talk about my drab outfit that day.
