Deciding to speak on Eco Brick came after Keagan Chang attended on Eco Brick workshop in May. He realizes that roots plastic can be put to good use instead of seeing it reach the seas and ocean which the marine wildlife, the sea turtles will eat by mistake and die of starvation due to being choked. Waste plastic and Eco Brick are so close to his heart that he would love to see himself as an ambassador of Eco Brick, creating awareness to one and all that plastic is evil

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.
