One of Muhammad Amir Danial Mohd Khaironi’s artwork, Untukmu, reflects on the resilient spirit of Malaysians during the pandemic.. When asked in detail about it, he said:
During this time, most of us gave up on life. Many had to give up their jobs, families and home. As a result, their thoughts are jumbled and they have lost focus in their lives. We must assist and aid them with the spirit of #kitajagakita and developing Malaysia from the ground up together.Muhammad Amir Danial Mohd Khaironi, Malaysian Local Artist
