Bulanlifestyle featured in Tatler Malaysia as local artists to follow

As featured in Tatler Malaysia. Thank you for the mention!! What a lovely surprise. I consider it an honour when Tatler lists me as a local artist to follow.

“If you can’t find the time to support local artists by visiting your nearest art gallery, you could just as easily start by ‘following’ Joee and these 4 Instagram accounts.”

It’s very encouraging when local media start to pick up on my work. As an artist, all I have to use as a gauge is my instinct and heart. It is all about the passion. There is no set path you can follow. I often sit at home and wonder if I am doing the right thing. I don’t know. I don’t have the answer. For me I will continue doing what I do as long as I have a roof over my head and as long as my art makes me happy 🙂

Have a beautiful week and keep doing what makes you happy.

JIMMY NELSON – PHOTOGRAPHER

Jimmy Nelson (UK, 1967) started working as a photographer in 1987. Having spent 10 years at a Jesuit boarding school in the North of England, he set off on his own to traverse the length of Tibet on foot (1985). The journey lasted a year and upon his return his unique visual diary, featuring revealing images of a previously inaccessible Tibet, was published to wide international acclaim.

Who am I?

The Dragon fish (螭吻 chiwen) in Chinese is literally translated as Hornless dragon lips. 

The mythological creature is one of the Chinese dragon’s nine sons and is believed to ward of evil and swallow fire. 

Another legend is about the carp that jumped over the dragon’s gate. It is believed that once in a while, a carp through perseverance and determination manages to swim up river and successfully jumps over the dragon’s gate, turning the carp into a dragon.
