Invited speakers were Mohd Fuad Arif, Liu Cheng Hua and Haslin Ismail whom discussed and explored their ideas and views through their creative practices.

On 2th April 2015, Galeri Chandan on behalf of the Art Community Who Cares paid a visit to the Al Bayan School of Quran & Hadith in Sungai Buloh, Selangor to present the proceeds from our recent Live Draw Session with the iconic rock legend Amy Search in conjunction with Extreme Portraits Part 1 : Renegotiating Ideas & Identities Exhibition held at our gallery in Publika.
Our Managing Director En Nazli Aziz, was there to personally present the proceeds to the Head of Al Bayan , Ustaz Bilal together with the presence of Amy Search himself. In addition, the tahfiz students also received a new Al Quran each.
A Night For A Good Cause
It was a night to remember for us at Galeri Chandan and the art community when we received an overwhelming response at the opening of Extreme Portrait Part 1: Renegotiating Ideas and Identities last Friday night.
Maybe it was just a coincidence when we realised it was Friday the 13th and our gallery were filled by portraits of some interesting shapes and sizes of extreme portraiture!. With the attendance of the iconic rock legend Amy Search whom officiated the show, it added to a pop art fascination for celebrity portraits which was a big thing in the mid 20th century and which has continued to the present day.
