'Colours of Sweat'

Last Saturday, Fadzilah and I went to see a solo exhibition by Hasnee A. Rahman titled, Colours of Sweat. The exhibition is a collection of acrylic paintings on canvas of various sports like cycling, swimming, tennis, squash and athletics.

No one was around when we arrived. So we admired the paintings, snapped a few photographs and left comments in the guest book. I could have guessed that the exhibition is held in conjunction with the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
In my opinion, Hasnee uses lots of vibrant colours in his work to bring out the dynamic energy and power of sports. Nicol David, Tiger Woods and Rafael Nadal are some of the sports personality drawn by him.
This is the most expensive painting in the exhibition:
It costs:

After viewing all the paintings, I decided that this is my favourite:
But I can't afford it because it costs:
That's equivalent to a downpayment for a condo unit or even a car! So I guess I've got to put aside collecting paintings till much later.
