MyTigerValues 2021 - Art Competition & Exhibition
Welcome to MyTigerValues 2021!
The state of social exclusion as an effect of the pandemic does not stifle the nation’s overall need for closure. Various efforts have been made to reach out to each other and strengthen our morale and general well-being. This provides the background inspiration for the contestants in this 2021 edition of Maybank’s MyTiger Values Art Competition.
On the aesthetic side, there is a spike in abstract narrative representations in the entries for this year – particularly in the sequential art category. Contestants prefer to express their messages through subtle symbolism and abstract narratives, without much need for literal text. This shows an interesting trend towards the current aesthetic preference. Objective references may seem too kitschy a move for some. Subtle though it may be, it is undeniably still in line with the values represented by TIGER – Teamwork, Integrity, Growth, Excellence & Efficiency and Relationship Building.
