VIDEO: Leonardo da Vinci’s Masterpieces in Kuala Lumpur – PLUS Lost on the Monorail
The Leonardo da Vinci Opera Omnia exhibit was on display at Malaysia’s National Art Gallery for just one month from July 15 to August 15, 2019. I had the opportunity to check it out just a few days before it closed and moved on to Bangkok and then Yangon. The exhibit contained 17 reproductions of Leonardo’s most famous paintings. These reproductions were created using sophisticated digital techniques and high-tech lighting to recreate, for the very first time, the experience of seeing all of Leonardo’s paintings on display in one gallery.
As always, the goal of my day’s adventure – to see the exhibit – was just a small part of what actually happened. The day began with a bang (as you can see in the bonus clip at the end). Simply getting to the art gallery and then through security to enter the building was a small adventure. And then I became thoroughly lost and confused as I tried to ride the monorail to a camera store and then back to my guest house. It all ended well, however, and it was a good day. Hope you enjoy the video.
