Malaysian Art, Batik

If you are looking for authentic pieces to decorate your home with and you are tired of the "IKEA" look , why not purchase some Malaysian Batik. Now I know for some of you the word "Batik" conjures up images from the 1970's and 1980's and is closely linked with images of "tie 'n' dye" t-shirts. But before you dismiss batiks altogether pop down and visit Aziz's workshop. He creates Batik's with a modern twist and is also an ambassador of this dying art form. If you are an artist yourself or just bored at home, Aziz will gladly give you lessons, so you can create your own colour co-ordinated masterpieces to go on the wall above your couch.
Aziz's workshop is located along the passage way between the LRT station of Dang Wangi and monorail station of Bukit Nanas. The workshop incidentally, also lies at the beginning of the inner city jungle trail that leads past the Menara KL tower.

  1. This is really great! It reminded me of my batik painting experience at MyBatik, Kuala Lumpur. I'd recommend everyone to go for batik painting if you were to visit Malaysia, because it is one of Malaysia's ancient traditional arts. I had the privilege to experience batik painting while i was on my visit to the capital city of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur. I stumbled upon MyBatik whilst i was walking around KL, from KLCC. I didn't even know the place existed, it is a beautiful place, very relaxing in the midst of chaotic Kuala Lumpur. I was really pleased with the batik painting that i made there, by myself. I find the price reasonable too. For anyone who is visiting Kuala Lumpur, this is an opportunity not to be missed! Give batik painting a try!
