Run, piggies, run. The artists are coming for you. 

A community development platform seeks to draw out the artist in Penangites, and to function as a conduit for society’s “dan lain-lain” – those who revel or dabble in forms of expression that veer from the mainstream.

Meet Ksatriya, co-founder of Bad Wolves, a mentorship programme that conducts workshops, classrooms and masterclass workshops for aspiring artists.

Who are the Bad Wolves?
Ksatriya: There’s like 15 of us – everyone who contributes to our projects becomes a “bad wolf”.

Why "Bad Wolves"?
I believe that names tell a story, and that the stories we tell ourselves are important. We chose the wolf as our symbol because it tells our story and provides qualities and values to which we should aspire: wolves are intelligent, form strong communities and work together with a high degree of coordination. They are focused on the hunt, forming fluid but incredibly effective plans. A lone wolf may starve, but a pack often prospers.
