Art Gallery has a wide collection of
art accumulated over 35 years. VK's
first purchased was in Australia when I was 19
years old. It was a picture of an aborigine girl
painted on felt with her tears dripping from her
eyes. Obviously, she is very sad. This picture
stirred compassion within me. I remember the words
of Revelation chapter 21 verse 4 about heaven,
"He will wipe every tear from their eyes".
This picture communicate this effect to you and
since then, I have start to collect painting from
time to time when the opportunity arise according
to budget. I still have this painting and it will
be exhibited in my gallery. View image
the cause of my business, I travel extensively
to Bali, Indonesia and around the world. The
more I traveled, the more I realize that there
are still so much wonderful nature's sceneries
and people's faces to meet and see. A large
part of my collection is from Bali and Asia.
In my later years, I have collected more contemporary
pictures. However, I do not have much modern
art or abstract and prefer a more pictorial
and meaningful art form. The gallery is created
recently because I was beginning to have so
many painting and picture all over my factory
and office in such a way that I have no space
for them. Out of passion, I have created this
gallery on the back of my business.
gallery consists of 4000 sq ft divided into
2 sections. It is fully carpeted with good spot
lights to highlight certain features of the
paintings. We have furnished the gallery with
9 big air-conditioners (30,000 BTU) to keep
the paintings in good condition and the environment
cool comfort for visitors.
gallery also features a lot of my photography
since photography is also on of my passion.
I like to capture the wide range of subject
including scenery, nature and also some nude
female nude form fascinate me as it imparts
fluidity, grace, curves, fullness, different
shapes and sizes and if you mix it with light
and colour, it presents an amazing array of
permutation and combination. My nude beauties
are meant to share naked beauty through the
discerning angle and eye through the camera
Michael Angelo says he prefers to sculpture
the male form because man has more muscles and
therefore more details. I have large print of
Michael Angelo "Last Judgement" painted
on wall of the Sistine Chapel in Vatican and
a limited porcelain release of the "Creation
are also very interesting as the "eye is
the window to your soul". Expressions are
revealed through the eye, facial muscles, lips
and hair configuration. A close up like the
Afghan girl by Steve Scurry is very striking
that is "the pair of piercing eyes".
I have the "original copy" on canvass.
will see a lot of gum trees shots taken during
my many trips to Australia. Gum trees are particularly
interesting as they have so many varieties.
The bark of the gum trees or "eucalyptus"
are fascinating when peeling away, some are
white as ghost. Gum trees in good sunlight give
very nice sway and contrast of colours and lighting.
You will be able to see this in pictorial form.
There are pine trees which is also very interesting.
I have traveled to Philippines Banaue rice terrace
which is one of the 8 wonders of the world.
You have to travel 4000 to 7000 metres above
sea level and takes 4 days tour journey to reach
there and shoot the scenic rice terraces. I
have good collection of the rice terrace pictures
which is very beautiful - just incredible the
way the mountains were curved up by the locals
over the centuries.
am also fascinated by the colours and shades
of flowers. We also have a good range of flowers
pictures as well. Birds and wild life are also
my interest. The pictures will be added from
time to time when I am able to capture a good

so expensive paintings which people can collect
