Sometimes, the most meaningful conversations begin with a simple “Hello!”

Welcome to Hello Zafigo, a series of online conversations with women from all walks of life from all over the world. Listen in while they share stories on life, culture, and a common love for travel! After all, life is a journey and realising our fullest potential makes it an adventure!

A bi-weekly affair hosted by Marina Mahathir, we will be bringing you casual chats and even educational workshops covering various topics such as mental health, social impact, finance hacks, and everything else in between.

Travel has long been a favourite activity for artists as it brings about inspiration on different fronts. Seeing new places, meeting new people, and learning new things opens up a whole new world to them, and it’s common for artists to use these influences and incorporate them into their work.

In The Art Of Travel: Finding Inspiration In The Journey, Marina Mahathir chats with Malaysian contemporary artist, Red Hong Yi about creative process and personal influences, as well as how her own excursions, whether near or far, have impacted her art.
