Mr Lim Anuar is a prime example of how the arts industry has struggled throughout the pandemic!
Certain industries and businesses have chosen to close down permanently after realising they can no longer sustain themselves throughout the pandemic. One of the hardest-hit industries is the creative arts. Mr Lim Anuar is one of Malaysia’s struggling artists looking to continue making a living during the lockdown.
Kampung Tunku MP, Lim Yi Wei, spoke about how Mr Lim Anuar, a deaf artist, has been suffering as his art gallery and art classes have remained closed down due to the pandemic.
“As galleries and art classes remain closed due to Covid-19, his earnings have suffered. He’s been alone as his family couldn’t return from his wife’s hometown in Vietnam due to closed borders,” said the MP in a tweet thread.
“His primary medium is batik paintings of landscapes and kampung scapes, which have been exhibited locally, in Belgium, Australia, USA and India among others.”
“I felt very touched by his ability to remain cheerful despite the circumstances. Thanks to his caring friend Mdm Loon who helped us communicate using sign language.”
The current times we’re living in are definitely challenging for everybody but the circumstances of certain individuals make the impact of the pandemic weigh heavier on their well-being.
If you have the resources to support Mr Lim and his beautiful artwork, please do consider purchasing his work.
Artists like Mr Lim deserve our support simply for his resilience in remaining strong despite the obstacles he has been facing.
