Art Expo 2014 #artexpomalaysia #art


Art lovers, you have to visit the Art Expo Malaysia 2014 held at Matrade! The Expo started today and will end on Sunday. Entrance is free.

I arrived there just past noon and was immediately greeted by gorgeous artwork from 30 countries, well not at once but over 4 hours.

I have taken some photo of my favourite pieces (which is a lot!) and will label them below once I get all the business cards and artist profiles sorted out.

Chinese Artist
Funnily, I've dreamed the scene below before (sea life in the sky) and Ernesto Morales had the same dream but he as an artist, of course managed to paint it
Nebulosas 2 by Ernesto Morales 
Gorgeous photography by Giuseppi Nora. I like her reflections collection:


The art piece below by Ramon Piaguaje is a self-taught artist, is the son of a the Chief of the Secoya Indigenous people of Equador. His paintings are so detailed you feel that you are looking at a photograph. He mostly known as "the painter of the jungle".


Interestingly, there is a booth in the Chinese Pavilion area where artworks of from the Society of Persons with Learning Disabilities Selangor & Kuala Lumpur are showcased. For more information about these artists, please visit http://www.unitedvoice.com.my/ep_artgallery.htm



Have you seen an artist paint a blank canvas in 12 minutes? Watch the video below as I captured him in action at the Art Expo.

  12. I like the art pieces! If only your images can be full size instead of thumbnails, as it takes time to open and load the bigger images! My favourite of your favourite is the picture of the two girls? done by the Chinese artist. The lightly coloured painting give the soft and soothing feel~

    1. The artists might not have to pay too much as the main sponsor is Ambank Group backed by The Malaysian Ministry of Tourism and Culture among other sponsors. It's really a gateway to bring in international visitors to appreciate the art that global artists have to offer. Insurance, security and logistics of their art pieces will, however, cost a bomb!
