Where: Suma Orientalis Fine Art, The Five @ KPD, B-3A-1, Level 3A, Block B, Jalan Dungun, Bukit Damansara, 50490 Kuala Lumpur

If art is your jam, head on over to Suma Orientalis Fine Art gallery at The Five to discover the latest solo exhibition by Eng Hwee Chu, a contemporary artist who graduated from the Malaysian Institute of Art in 1989. As the third solo exhibition in her career, ‘Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered’ sees the maturation of her artistic style into a new phase where her yearning for social justice in a patriarchal world meets aphoristic enlightenment. Her paintings present surreal imagery that will evoke deep emotions and contemplation of the world we all live in.
