The artist wanted to use “Joyful Bloom” to represent the charm, elegance and purity of our national flower, Vanda Miss Joaquim. The artist wishes to portray the welcoming and warm smile he has to celebrate all of life’s precious moments just like the orchid’s bloom in a joyful background colour. He is often seen connecting individuals and spreading joy by simply being present.
