The Glory of Special Ability, Series 1 • Acrylic on canvas • 30.5 x 30.5 cm • 2019 • by artjamila
Interpretation: People with disabilities are able to afford quality education, basic healthcare and success in business just like any other person. Everyone can achieve their dreams with the help of motivation from others and the drive to succeed. This painting shows all the different disabilities: the blind, the deaf, the physically disabled and those facing neurological disorders like autism or dyslexia. They have made their dreams a reality; they are either holding a golden trophy, holding a certificate, or wearing graduation caps to tell of their success. Their arms in the air shows that they are happy and proud of themselves. The landscape resembles the landmarks and buildings that can be found in the 11 Asean countries, that are: Timor-Leste, Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Myanmar, Indonesia, Cambodia, Philippines, Brunei, and Laos.
