Inspired by the 75th anniversary of Independence Day of Republic of Indonesia, AkzoNobel organized a Let’s Colour event to encourage residents of Bandung, West Java, to share the joy through paint. To spread the spirit of happiness all across Bandung, the residents were simultaneously painting murals. Thanks to their vibrant energy and infectious optimism, the exceptional artworks were born.
Sharing the spirit of happiness and joy
This year, Independence Day in Indonesia was a tiny bit different. The adoption of health protocols to reduce COVID-19 transmission has changed a lot. However, the residents maintained an optimistic attitude, which inspired a vivid transformation supported by Let’s Colour. Together, we have managed to do something meaningful. We have spread the spirit of joy all around Bandung.
A colorful collaboration
Let’s Colour collaborated with a community of mural artists called GSSI (Generasi Semangat Selalu Ikhlas), involving mural artists in Bandung. According to Indra Laban, the President Director at AkzoNobel Decorative Paints Indonesia, the artists have been actively involved in empowering their communities during the pandemic.
“We hope this event will lift the spirits amid the COVID-19 pandemic, as we plan to continue using the paint to maintain the optimism and joy in our communities,” said Indra. Therefore, to support this year’s event, Let’s Colour donated 150 liters of Dulux paint in four different colors. The artists used this paint to create 15 extraordinary murals on the houses in Bandung.
Enjoying sunrise and sunsets together
Dian, an artist from Bandung, is a creator of the mural with a theme ‘Flowers Stay Positive’, that conveys a message of spreading happiness and joy throughout the community.
“In addition to the final result of the mural, the making process was also joyful. Together with family members, we were painting, all while enjoying the sunrise and sunsets. It feels good when people praise our work, especially as we have enjoyed the entire journey,” said Dian.
“This colorful journey makes us excited about the future, as we know that the paint has more power than we think,” Indra Laban added.
