Inspired by the fruity arty moment of drawing or eating local fruits which most Malaysians share, Driv Loo, Ellie See, Chris Wong & Levin Teh collaborated and curated Makanlah Buah-buahan Tempatan (MB–BT) Exhibition in 2011 to promote local fruits & to rally the nation to appreciate (and consume) locally crafted art. After all, art is also one of the fruits of our homeland. MB–BT’s intentions include supporting and celebrating local talent in art & design; homegrown creative culture, and to explore visual arts that are created in our own community. And the ultimate aim of MB–BT is to cultivate an appreciation for local art in the city so that upcoming artists need not always flock to overseas to seek for takers or acknowledgement. Read Less

Growing up in a multi-cultural country, I noticed that Malaysians are actually very adaptive to the environments, weather, food and languages. Based on the spirit, I've created a series of posters using balloons as the skin, which I stuffed them with the objects we see and use daily to reform the shapes of our local fruits. I have used cotton swabs for durian; ping pong balls for mangosteen; and children building blocks for fruits skewer.
