Our Story

Who are we?

Lonely Planet is the inner world of a group of disabled children.

Besides being a passionate mural artist Eric Lai, who comes from Ipoh, Perak is also an art teacher. However, the children in his art class are unlike other hobby classes. They come from the Lonely Planet in outer space. The children possess amazingly artistic talent and have their own stories. Although they exist in the same world as us, they live independently in a universe that we can barely fathom out of it.

The idea of the Lonely Planet’s NFT Art Exhibition was born from Eric Lai yearning desire. With the help of the painting brush in their hand, Eric Lai hopes this group of gifted star children can showcase their inner world to society through their artistic creations. It allows the star children to develop self-reliance skills, too.

我们是谁?

孤獨星球所指的是一群特殊兒童心底深處不為人知的小世界。

霹靂州怡保有一位熱心的壁畫作者兼美術老師,賴維權。他美術班所教導的孩子和一般興趣班會有些不同,這群孩子都是來自天外的孤獨星球,都卻有着令人驚訝的美術天賦及自己的故事。这群孩子虽然和我们共存在同一个世界,然而他们有独自活在我们不能理解的宇宙里。

孤獨星球NFT作品展的誕生,是源自賴老師心中一個一直想要實現的願望,希望這一群充滿藝術天份的星星孩子們,能夠借助手中的畫筆,讓社會群眾能夠透過作品看到他們心中的世界,同時也能夠讓星星孩子們擁有能夠自力更生的技能。

如果特殊孩子是一座叫孤独星球的监狱,那能够打开这监狱的锁匙叫作艺术。
If children with special needs stay in a prison named Lonely Planet, then the access key that could set them free is called Art.
