Have you heard of Nando’s Art Initiative before? This yearly event is a wonderful programme for the young ones to pursuit their dreams. As part of Nando’s continuous commitment and support to the winners of Nando’s Art Initiative, Nando’s Lot 123, Chinatown is having the art exhibition of The Digital Grand Prize winner of Nando’s Art Initiative 2014, Yvonne Chong Shi Qi. The talented artist is excited for her first solo art exhibition that showcase her collection of artworks entitled ‘Garden of Goddesses’.
Yvonne Chong Shi Qi
The exhibition is an insight to Yvonne’s fascination and passion for the World of myths and fairy tales. From a very young age she had always found herself constantly being drawn to the world of mythical Gods and Goddesses. The theme of this exhibition is to portray the kinship shared between each goddess and their mortal counterpart.
Her unique style is strongly inspired by the works of Frida Kahlo which are focused mainly on self-portraits with intricate elements of nature. Thrown into the mix of inspiration is also a bit of surrealism and the art nouveau movement. Putting together a fantasy, dreamlike imagery and pairing it with soft feminine features provides her with a sense of calm and serenity.

“Yvonne is one of the most imaginative artists Nando’s has had on Nando’s Art Initiative. We cannot be more proud of her by the way she illustrates her perspective into a masterpiece through the use of digital art. We look forward to see the great things Yvonne will achieve in the art world.” Said Mac Chung Lynn, Group CEO of Nando’s Chickenland Malaysia and Singapore.
