Paintings, installation works and other art work reflect the theme for this year which speaks of diversity and inclusivity not just in the artworks themselves, but also in the artists’ diverse backgrounds and creative disciplines. 

AWH 2019 presents six artists from Universiti Malaysia Sabah, led by the renowned Sabahan art Professor Dr. Zaimie Sahibil, who is well-known for his innovative use of colour, technique and materials.

RHB’s Art with Heart Exhibition provides young and emerging artists with a platform to showcase their talent and ideas, while promoting the local art scene and encouraging the public to appreciate works of art by our home-grown artists. This year’s exhibition also allows us to appreciate the unique interpretation of the theme by the artists through their artworks. Through AWH we hope to deepen the appreciation of art among Malaysians and accord our young and emerging local artists with added mileage in reaching a larger audience,” said Norazzah Sulaiman, Group Chief Communications Officer, RHB Banking Group.
