Shell Malaysia Celebrating 125 Years Through Art

Believe it or not, Shell has been in Malaysia for a whopping 125 years! To celebrate their 125th year, Shell Malaysia unveiled “Celebrating 125 Years” – an art project involving famous Malaysian artists like Datuk Lat, Cheeming Boey, Yap Hanzhen (an autistic savant artist), Amey Sheikh Ali, Caryn Koh, Thomas Powell and Dmojo, as well as Madrid-based Sabek.

“Shell has journeyed with Malaysians for 125 years, and together we have achieved many firsts in the industry. As one of the country’s leading fuel retailers, we aim to continue driving the Malaysian pioneering spirit, which has been integral to the country’s success,” said Datuk Haji Azman Ismail, Managing Director Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn. Bhd. and Shell Timur Sdn. Bhd.

 

Celebrating 125 Years Through Art

The eight artists created 15 murals at selected Shell stations nationwide, with at least one mural in every state. They were asked to create those murals to showcase their interpretation of progress in Malaysia, and the Malaysian pioneering spirit. Some chose to illustrate familiar Malaysian scenes and landmarks. Others highlighted Malaysian nature and society.

“Each mural reflects on society’s common values, which Shell also embraces as part of its DNA: diversity, unity, respect, and inclusiveness. We believe these values unite Malaysians across the country, and will propel the nation forward into the next 125 years. Our aim is for the murals to reach out to people, share these common values, and hopefully inspire and enrich their lives,” he continued.
