Boasting over 5,000 square feet of floor space, the Art Village Gallery contains what could be called the widest range of paintings available for viewing or sale in the country. If you’re on the hunt for artwork to adorn your walls at home, but are uncertain as to what to look for, the Art Village Gallery would be the place to begin your search for singular pieces ranging in style from photorealistic depictions to abstract compositions of pop art.

Where most other art galleries are content with displaying works with wide-ranging appeal, the Richard Koh Fine Art gallery, located on Bangsar’s Jalan Maarof, presents an eclectic collection of thought-provoking paintings and sculptures that would cause even the most eccentric among us to do a double-take. A visit to the Richard Koh Fine Art gallery requires an open mind, as the works displayed tend to convey deep meaning – such as Natee Utarit’s depictions of the absurd in oil and canvas.

Endorsed by the Goethe Institute and UNESCO, the SGFA is a hub of contemporary Asian art located at the heart of Petaling Jaya, in Section 16. Designed in modern post-industrial style by the ecological-conscientious architect Ken Yeang, this renowned gallery straddles the division between a commercial establishment and an art collective, with many of Malaysia’s emerging artists (including names such as Chin Kon Yit and Zac Lee) attending forums and exhibiting their works here.

Founded by the renowned Malaysian expressionist, Yusof Ghani, the Malaysian Gallery of Fine Arts (or Gallery Tapak, as it is known in the region) showcases the works of over 40 local artists including Ibrahim Hussein, Jehan Chan, and Rafiee Ghani, among others. The gallery in Shah Alam houses a range of paintings from abstract bursts of colour to ethereal oil on canvas depicting scenes of Malaysian life.

With over a hundred publications on the subject of art to its name, and the continued support of numerous corporate patrons over the last decade and a half, the Wei-Ling Gallery is a well-known name in the local art scene. Beyond showcasing contemporary paintings by both local and international artists, the Wei-Ling Gallery also displays architectural works, photographs, and sculptures, among other media. The gallery in Brickfields is an academic example of modern Malaysian architecture in its own right – being housed in a reconstructed post-war building designed by the local award-winning architect, Jimmy Lim.
