Interpretation: The Industrial Revolution has caused global warming. COVID 19 has shaken the world. The Coronavirus world pandemic has reduced the amount of carbon in the air during the lockdown period. The busy and noisy cities have turned into quietness. The noises have become silent. People learn to think differently and do things differently. In order to save the world, we must thrive towards balancing between greenery and concrete. This painting depicts the imaginary landscape of famous landmarks in Malaysia covered in blooming Malaysian national flowers, the hibiscus. The people of Malaysia from different ethnics are surrounded by greenery in the Kuala Lumpur Metropolitan City. It reflects the spirit of togetherness of the ethnics of Malaysia in turning the buildings and infrastructure into green cities.
