Three Islands Art Exhibition

Maya Gallery is proud to be part of Three Islands Art Exhibition at the Jawi House, in Penang, Malaysia. A collaboration of three galleries from Penang, Singapore and Langkawi – Jawi House, Maya Gallery and Beranda Gallery, the exhibition emphasises on the theme of impressionistic and environmental, transcending cultures and traditions. The artists\' works are bold, confident, and inspirational, sweeping across traditional forms of visual symbolism to present harmony of colour and form in different schools of art. They are universal, yet contextual, capturing the essence of the growing Malaysian and Singapore art scene.

Three Islands puts together the works of upcoming and veteran Malaysian and Singapore artists.

From the Maya Gallery of Singapore, and showing for the first time in Penang are the works of Jeffrey Wandly and Masturah Shaari.

From the Beranda Gallery in Langkawi, the works of Hairul Azizi Amat, renowned residential artist of Langkawi and a growing celebrity on the island art scene.

From Jawi House, the works of Anuar Rashid, Rashid Top, Khalid Sapari and Susanna Hernesniemi, a Finnish artist based in Penang.

These works are inspiring and would appeal to art enthusiasts and collectors.
