I think most of UM community don't know the presence of Art Gallery in the campus,
As it's going to be next tourist spot in campus, before I graduate from the university,
I spent some time to visit this newest spot in campus- University of Malaya Art Gallery (UMAG)

It's located at 5th floor of Chancellor Building

Initiated in 2011, UM Art Gallery is a cultural legacy envisioned to be an icon of University Malaya through the study, preservation, conservation,exhibition, interpretation and development of its collections and also the exhibition of works by local and international artist, supported by creative learning activities aimed at diverse audiences across ages from the uninitiated to the expert.

Renowned artists include James Wathen, Chen Wen Hsi, Cheong Soo Pieng, M.F.Hussain, Syed Ahmad Jamal, Chuah Thean Teng, Abdul Latiff Mohidin, Lai Fong Moi, Ahmad Khalid Yusoff and Chia Yu Chian

There are having season exhibition with some theme, and when I visited, the theme is about Canting , Ismail Mat Hussin.

The drawing is mainly related to theme, with full of batik style.

Some items used for canting...

Various pattern of Batik clothes

Besides season exhibition, there are some permanent art exhibition. The drawing below is by Datuk Chuah Thean Teng.

Some painting is close and need permission to see it closer.

I like this painting....It's colourful and I can feel the happiness in this paint.
