Feast and Furious Cafe Mural

Artsy Daphy started furiously as we completed our first mural of 2016! The Feast and Furious Cafe Mural on Abell Road, Kuching, Sarawak, Borneo, Malaysia got itself a feature on Borneo Post! 😀

Up-close shot of the left side of the mural. The pup in my bicycle is Repsol! She’s the sweet little pup that our Client rescued on one of his rides. Janani’s on the Vespa, and Alex’s on the Ducati. The guy above Alex is Eddy Merckx, a professional cyclist and on his left, Valentino Rossi.

The whole thing took about 14 days to complete with one week on my yellow magic carpet!

We also had a go on the cherry picker on the final touch-up day 😀 Yes, I can now operate both machines!

During our two weeks there, we met tons of curious and interesting people too. This very friendly couple came up and asked, “You, drew this? That is er.. Rossi?”. When I replied, “Yes, you recognize him?”, they said proudly, “Yes yes! We’re from Italy!” and pointed at Rossi and the Ducati. 😀

And this guy was touring Malaysia with his little sister. This is probably the fifth picture he made his sister take. They were so cute and made me want to travel with my sibling too!

Till the next project, do follow the social media links on the left to get regular sneak peaks on our latest projects before they reach this website! You can also follow my personal blog at daphnesiaw.com for more random, not totally art-related stuff. Thanks for dropping by!

I’ve never been one for words. There’s too much to express that it’ll take a very long time to say all that I am thinking and feeling. I am really bad at this.  Even typing this short introductory paragraph took up time and frustrated me. 
I really admire Lang Leav. Being able to put so much thoughts and feelings into just a few beautiful lines is really useful.  
Anyway,  in attempts to describe this picture, I shall try my best:
We’ve all been here. Re-painting our damaged hearts, trying to keep it red with hope.  Pushing day by day,  carrying on, growing stronger,  becoming numb… Whether you’re sick of waking up to your torturing 9-5 job,  or dealing with your 13th breakup, just know that you’re not alone. And that there really is no point in taking things too seriously, because no one will ever understand the complexity of another’s emotions. So, keep calm and carry on. 
(Yes,  easy to say,  hard to do,  hence the painting, but really,  it’s not that bad)

I have a passion, it’s obviously in Art. But, I also get crazy excited when it comes to everything or anything to do with Fashion!

Be it Fashion related movies like The Devil Wears Prada (omg I watched that like a gazillion times), Fashion magazines (BAZAAR!), Fashion YouTubers (chrisellelim), Fashion Blogs (Polyvore), Fashion shows, Fashion Week, Fashion news, Street Fashion or anything at all from Lady Gaga to Blair Waldorf (I was so into Gossip Girl because of, you guessed it, the Fashion),
I LOVE ‘EM ALL. 
It truly is a beautiful form of art that people admire and indulge in.



















Haute Couture Sketch (2013)

Especially Haute Couture!
The dresses are so perfect, so detailed, so elegant, so unique, so creative, so beautiful, I still haven’t had the time to challenge myself to paint a portrait of one of them!


























Diane Von Furstenberg Inspired Dress (2013)
I love sketching pieces and  patterns from  magazines, movies, on the streets, anytime, anywhere.

It just excites and inspires me.

So I’ve came up with an idea.
A little project. 
It’ll take some time…
…Some money.

But I hope to make it happen before the year ends. Can’t wait!
