Forty Han Chiang College students are taking part in a graffiti project, organised by the City Council of Penang Island at Youth Park on Saturday June 6 from 9am to 5pm.
The aim of the project is to capture the island’s beauty and to promote a positive approach towards street art.
Running for the second time this year, the theme ‘Penang City Day’ will see students expressing their love for Penang in a creative and fun way.
With Penang’s new city status, the students will produce colourful, eye-catching graffiti, boasting some of the island’s interesting mix of modern skyscrapers and iconic landmarks, the eclectic fusion of diverse cultures and even some tongue-in-cheek pieces.
All these will be produced by the college’s students under the guidance of their lecturer and advisor Lim Chun Woei, who is also the founder of Urban-Cr3atures, where it serves as a playground for artists to experiment with different art approaches.
“I think it is important for students to have the opportunity to learn new skills and apply them, as well as experience graffiti and mural painting.
“It is very important to paint with a proper channel and application as wrong messages such as vulgar language and explicit content could tarnish the image of Georgetown,” Lim said.
All the students will be working in groups of 5, and will be covering all of 7 walls.
Lim and another lecturer, Lim Thong Soon, will also be taking part and produce their own art on the 8th wall.
Vice Principal Dr Beh Kok Hooi said that the college is proud to be working with the City Council of Penang Island and hopes that with the popularity of wall art in Georgetown, Penang will see graffiti as a form of unrestricted expression and various interpretations.
“With the right attitude, artists can use this form of art to deliver meaningful messages, just like Ernest Zacharevic. Who knows, our students may be the next Ernest Zacharevic,” Dr Beh added.
Han Chiang’s School of Multimedia and IT often exposes its students to activities outside of the college. Students are encouraged to further discover and explore their talents, as the college believes that learning must not be confined in college.
Film director Quek Shio Cuan, advised students to take baby steps when it comes to filmmaking.
Quek, currently attached with Reservoir Production, shared his journey in becoming a renowned film director during a sharing session organised by Han Chiang College.
“Start from the bottom with television commercials as you will gain better access of crews and learn fast,” he said.
He added that he never dreamed of becoming a director due to the limited choices he had in the past.
When asked on the challenges he faced in the industry, Quek said that he had once thought of quitting when he compared himself to friends who had office jobs.
“I saw my friend in proper formal attire while I was sweating all over in my white T-shirt,” he said as he explained the difficult nature of the job.
Quek’s recent project is to produce a movie based on his previous short film ‘Guang’ which bagged numerous local international awards.
“This film is based on my real life story of learning how to cope with my brother who is an autistic patient,” Quek said.
The production process will begin this August in Penang and Quek has extended an invitation to all attendees at the sharing session to join the crew on the set.
Head of Broadcasting Lee Kean Wei said that the event aims to prepare students in facing the demands of the industry after they graduate from college.
Keng Hui Yuen, 19, said that the session was a good exposure for her as she had the chance to learn from an experienced film director.
The sharing session saw the attendance of 50 students together with lecturers Delton Cox, Ho Rhu Pin, Kek Phaik Yong and Mohd Eswandy.
Han Chiang College has set up a new study corner for students to use during and after class hours.
The study area is located beside the multi-purpose hall and is available for students to use from 8am – 7pm.
Chief Executive Dr Chow Yong Neng said that the open space will enable students to carry out discussions in a more relaxed environment, and it is also a good option for those who wish to spend their time out of the library.
“The college has provided tables and chairs, and students need not register or apply for passes in order to use the space,” Dr Chow added.
The study area can accommodate up to 20 students at one time.
Apart from the newly introduced study zone, there are several places where students can make use of, for study purposes. These include the corridor along the computer labs in block B and the corridor near the staircase of block C.
Dr Chow said that students are not allowed to stay or enter the campus after 7pm as the college needs to ensure students’ safety.
