Story About Us
"It took many journeys and countries to shatter our hopes — It took one canvas to build it back up"
In 2018, Art Box PHM was founded by a group of refugee artist in hopes of creating more opportunities for artists of different cultures origins in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia.
The main purpose is to help refugee artists use their artistic skills as a way for them to earn income, exposure, and networking opportunities.
I want to use my artistic experience to tell stories about my journey and my homeland. I want my community — that is still holding onto a little piece of hope, that we can find comfort and protection — to be together in a safe platform, where we can develop our artworks and use our talents to increase our livelihood. I want to create more financial opportunities for us, as refugee artists.
Although it is only logical for my community and me to feel devastated after leaving our whole lives at home, art gives back what has been taken away from us: empowerment and courage.
