"I painted this during the first lockdown in May 2020 when for the first time i was able to really appreciate the little things in life. To be able to breathe daily was a gift which we tend to overlook. I called it Garden of Hope because my faith was strong to know we’ll get through this pandemic in due time. And when it’s over, i shall cherish the things i take for granted. We will grow through this together."

A little bit about the artist
Nina Khalil is a self-taught painter from Malaysia who does mostly abstract expressionism art, subconsciously and intuitively. Her art evolves as she heals. She often portrays the concept of duality in her paintings, ie. covering both colourful and the shadow sides of things. Growing up, Nina struggled expressing her emotions, so art is her way of expressing herself. Art to her is a sacred sharing of feelings and thoughts of an artist that is tangible.
“Art is the definition of the unspeakable truth. ” - Nina Khalil
