WELCOME TO MALAYSIA , my son , daugher , grandson , granddaughter cucu cicit and cocot !!! xxx
‘1600 Pandas MY’ which had travelled half the globe is now landed in Malaysia. The hype is expected to tour around Malay Peninsula, making stops at more than 15 locations. Each of these adorable panda shows funny yet authentic expression.
Upon their first visit to Malaysia, they are on a special mission, to pass the important message from World Wide Fund for Nature - Malaysia (WWF - Malaysia) regarding the significance of environmental preservation to every corner of the country.
The number 1600 is exactly the amount of the wild pandas that existed in the woods during the time this campaign was launched back then. Hopefully with this ‘1600 Pandas’ exhibition lasting 1 month in Malaysia, public awareness would raise and people would spend more time knowing the ideas behind environmental preservation.
In this coming December, artist Paulo Grangeon with collaborate with Faster Advertising as organizer and AllRightReserved as consulting curator to bring these 1600 pandas to tour around over 15 iconic landmarks in Malaysia.
Papier-Mâché in French a.k.a Paper mache means "chewed paper", is a composite material consisting of paper pieces or pulp, bound with an adhesive such as glue.
This word originates from France, the first European country which made Papier-Mâché. This special technique of art then spread to other European countries. It is believed that "paper mache" got its name from French workers in London paper mache shops.
Say hello to Paulo Grangeon, the French Artist and ‘Father’ of 1600 paper-mache pandas. He is the one who designed all these adorable pandas in various sizes. Then, the team in Bangkok crafted the 1600 pandas in the form of papier-mache using recycled material. These pandas promote conservation & reinforce the importance of building sustainable further in which humans live in harmony with nature.
