Art Galleries

Kudat

Visit to G Wonder Khayalan Home Art Gallery, it’s owned by a local Sabahan artist named Jainal Amambing, an award winning artist in domestic & international

Guess what❓⁉️

It’s also known as The Ugliest Home Art Gallery in North Borneo by the artist owner himself

Hmm…Why❓⁉️

Mr Jainal believes in finding art in imperfect things surrounding his life. So, he always love to portray the ugliest things from materials eg. The inner part of the Pokok Berlian, instead of the smooth tree trunk. To him, all things are art in different perspectives

Personally to SiennyLovesDrawing, this actually is a natural real look of an art gallery with the real art space of Mr Jainal to producing & exhibiting his art masterpieces & creative ideas

Absolutely an inspiring amazing gallery visit here. In fact, almost every corner in this home gallery is an instagrammable spot, highly recommended 📸👍🏻
