Vetti is a WordPress blogger I have an affinity with. We are both part of the old Ceylon diaspora. She’s in Melbourne; I’m in Singapore. I chanced upon her blog through WordPress.
Vetti this post is to say, thanks for introducing me to the incredible Indonesian artist illustrator Evelyn Tarunadjaja. I just had to share this post with more people like me who have not been introduced to her art. I also wanted bloggers to get a glimpse of where you live -surrounded by art, including your posts on graffiti that somehow look pretty.
I googled the word diaspora to see if I had spelt it right and found something really interesting. The word originates from Greek and it means “a scattering [of seeds]”. What a beautiful image that conjours. It refers to the movement of a population sharing common national or ethnic identity.
