Petronas Twin Towers (2003), by Osman Mia
24x36 inches, acrylic on canvas

The Petronas Twin Towers, which is part of the Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) complex, is the most visible landmark in this fascinating city of Kuala Lumpur - and this part of the world. The two towers were once the world's tallest buildings, until sometime Oct 2003, when a building being built in China overtook their height.

The two towers are truly a geometrical wonder, and you begin to appreciate this when you paint them. I could not paint all the intricate lines, and for this painting I had to simplify the shapes. While there are many photos available for my reference, I found I still had to carefully observe the towers first hand several times in order to define the shapes involved.

By the way, this was where I used to work.
