Now in Penang: ‘Treasures of a Straits Chinese’, an art exhibition
Where to go for a dose of art when you’re in Penang

Launching today at the G Art Gallery in G Hotel Gurney, 'Treasures of a Straits Chinese' is Tiffany Choong's first solo exhibition. An illustrator and pop artist from Penang, Choong's work is inspired by her upbringing in a family with strong Chinese traditions as well as modern western influences, with a particular focus on Peranakan culture.

 

At 'Treasures of a Straits Chinese', Choong invites the viewer to rediscover Nyonya motifs in a modern context. For a taste of what's in store for you, learn about some of these traditional symbols that will be on display at the exhibition below:
