Interpretation: The Industrial Revolution has caused global warming. In order to save the world, we must thrive towards balancing between greenery and concrete. This painting depicts the imaginary landscape of the buildings of Malaysia covered in blooming Malaysian flowers and plants. The people of Malaysia are clumped together in greens of Putrajaya and Sepang (in Series 1A), the Kuala Lumpur Metropolitan City (in Series 1B) and Kuala Lumpur Historical Buildings (in Series 1C). It reflects the spirit of togetherness of the ethnics of Malaysia in turning the buildings and infrastructure into green cities.
