Alif Omar makes his debut in KL Lifestyle Art Space’s art auction Sale XXXV featuring an eye-catching artwork entitled, ‘Pergh! (Tribute to Malaysian Superheroes), 2012’. This acrylic on canvas work showcases a league of superheroes grouped together with a Malaysian flag at its background, presumably signifying the super heroes in Malaysia. On the foreground, a child aspiring to be a superhero, decked in his cape and mask with a dog for a sidekick, looks up at these heroes in awe and exclaims, ‘pergh!’.
