The biggest mountain in our life is not what lies physically in front of us, but what lies within us.

This painting represents courage, strength and perseverance to go through obstacles that we face in life. The biggest mountain in our life is not what lies physically in front of us, but what lies within us. Moving forward has always been my inspiration in most of my paintings as well as being able to envision what lies ahead in the future for me. I see courage as the will to overcome myself, challenge the beliefs I hold, and change the habits I have.

I have lost precious time with my family, and this is the most important lesson that I have learnt. Yet through this difficult moment, there is always light, hope, and a perfect plan.

In partnership with Yellow Ribbon Project, selected artworks created by inmates from Visual Arts Hub (VAH) are showcased to represent the overcoming of adversity, instilling hope and to encourage the community not to give up during uncertain times.  

The featured artworks can be adopted by members of the public. All proceeds will go to the Yellow Ribbon Fund in support of the rehabilitation of ex-offenders. If you are interested, kindly contact Ms Carol Ho at Carol_HO@yellowribbon.gov.sg for more information.

The Yellow Ribbon Project (YRP) is a national public engagement campaign aimed at changing society’s mindset in giving ex-offenders a second chance in life. The community initiative aims to create awareness of the need to give second chances to ex-offenders, generate acceptance of ex-offenders and their families in the community, and inspire community action to support the rehabilitation and reintegration of ex-offenders into society.
