Acrylic On Canvas

A piece that was inspired about watching Wong Kar Wai’s film In The Mood For Love, set in 60s Hong Kong. A story about forbidden love and in the story, the female and male leads shared some special moments in room 2046 – writing martial novels :D The chinese title of this movie is Hua Yang Nian Hua. The Chinese title, Huayang Nianhua (translated in the subtitles as “Full Bloom” but more accurately meaning “those wonderful varied years”), is more suggestive of period nostalgia and the Shanghai association, pointing to an iridescent, kaleidoscopic age of bygone elegance and diversity.

    That is amazing … very moody in comparison to all your other ones. I love it.

  • The outdoor scenes of this movie was shot in Bangkok and not Hongkong…because it was difficult to find old buildings and houses in Hong Kong that fitted the criteria of the director. And the director and his art director are geniuses at creating moods in movies….and I am really glad to hear this one gives you a moody feeling :D Thanks!

    Love it! The dress is gorgeous on her, so 60"s. Her eyes are sad. Marvelous work! xxxxxx

  • Thanks very much Leena! It’s a movie about love and regrets….she wants to be with this guy but due to many social and cultural factors, she had to suppress her love….and she chose the status quo instead of being with the one she truly loves.
