Two weeks ago, the entertainment industry was left in shock when news of Taiwanese-Canadian model and actor Godfrey Gao passing away made headlines.
The 35-year-old collapsed and later passed away while filming a reality TV show called 'Chase Me' on 27 November.
Fans and fellow celebrities were heartbroken, and one Malaysian artist has decided to immortalise Gao in a sweet painting.
'Live your life'
The artist, one Lin Xinying from Johor, drew the picture of Gao holding his dog Theo, standing next to former professional basketball player James Mao and Mao’s wife Tiffany Lo.
Gao was reportedly supposed to be the best man for the couple’s wedding on 29 November.
Lin's work of art has created a huge buzz on the social media after she posted it on her Instagram account:
“Age has nothing to do with it. We are all in this line without even realising it. We never know how many people are in front of us. We can’t go back. We can’t get out of the line. We can’t avoid the line.”
“So while we’re waiting in line — enjoy every moment. Take the first step. Set priorities. Take your time. Make others happy. Make small things big. Make someone smile. Love as much as it works. Keep peace. Tell your family how much you love them. Regret nothing. Live your life,” wrote Lin along with the photo.
The photo has since received more than 19,000 likes and thousands of comments, mostly praising Lin’s work and thanking her for sharing the painting with them.
You've done a lovely job, Lin!
