Kuala Lumpur, April 2019 – Hari Raya is a time for renewal, whereby family and friends reaffirm bonds by catching up at each other’s open houses, over home-cooked food. It is because of this celebration that many families choose to spruce up their homes with a fresh coat of paint.

Lee Swee Chin, head of brand marketing of AkzoNobel Decorative Paints Malaysia sharing a few words before the Raya Art Jam session begins.

Riding on the spirit of fostering bonds, Dulux – the leading decorative paint brand of AkzoNobel – and Dr Eric Leong, Malaysian renowned designer and also the Head of Interior Architecture & Design School of One Academy, have partnered to host a workshop and showcase how easy it is to embark on a project to give walls at home a new breath of life.

“Today’s art jam initiative is part of our efforts to share the positive effects that colours bring, particularly during a festive season. With the Hari Raya celebrations coming soon, we hope that the tips and tricks shared today will be put to good use to make this year’s celebration extra special”, said Lee Swee Chin, head of brand marketing at AkzoNobel Decorative Paints Malaysia, during the workshop.

“Having hosted and produced more than 10 well-received TV programmes that revolve around interior decoration and designing, Dr Eric Leong is one of the most recognised faces in the industry. We are thankful that he is part of this project and look forward to future partnerships with him,” she added.

Throughout the workshop, Dr Leong tutored attendees on how to create several easy-to-do designs, including batik, lines, gradients, and geometrical shapes. He also gave a demonstration on the use of Dulux Ambiance Special Effects paints to achieve the metallic brush effect.

More importantly, he shared several basic steps for a successful Do-It-Yourself paint project, in which he explained: “The first step is to select a feature wall, which is usually the wall that faces the entrance and is the first wall that visitors see upon entering the home.

In conjunction with the upcoming Hari Raya celebrations, Dulux is hosting its ‘Ceriakan Raya-mu’ contest throughout 8 April to 26 May 2019. Customers who purchase selected Dulux paints during this period will automatically be in the running to win electrical appliances and furniture from the Ashley Furniture HomeStore.
