Snippets: 1H 2012
Got hold of it in 2012 (and subsequently gave away as a birthday present) - a Pudu map done by the artists collective that was recently active around Jalan Sultan. They did a similar map for the Petaling Street area, but I prefer this one as it has more historical jottings. The accompanying sketches of the window sill, frame, and grille designs, are a wonderful way to preserve cultural heritage, as we face the looming reality of "re-development".
Spotted this shop in my only time visiting Viva Home Mall - Kraftee Bee lets the customer decorate items with mosaic tiles. Hung beside the counter is this amazing (albeit poor quality snapshot below) A3-sized replica of Van Gogh's 'Sunflowers', which the owner claimed to be a work of a student, and that he was willing to part with it for RM 1,200. I said no, but I will be visiting the shop in the future if I have kids...
Took our pre-wedding photos at Sekeping Tenggiri, a refurbished back-to-nature space right next to Ng Sek San's art repository. The room we stayed in had a beautiful red & yellow figurative painting, which I have no idea who the artist is. To those who knows, appreciate yourself to enlighten me.
I was lucky enough to be staying very near to the best expresso-based coffee place in KL, Artisan Roast Coffee TTDI. These drawings hung above the counter and one day I finally got to meet the artist Raja Azeem, whom is also a coffee junkie, and he showed me some great sketches which you can see on his FB page.
