Penang is home to diverse collections of art, especially in George Town, which is an official UNESCO World Heritage Site. While on holiday in this charming Malaysian state, be sure to visit the local galleries and artistic attractions for your daily dose of art. Whether you’re into contemporary paintings or street sculptures, you’ll no doubt be captivated by the plethora of artistic creations. 

1. Art and Garden By Fuan Wong

Address: Jalan Teluk Bahang, 11100 Penang
Phone Number: +6 013 533 1232 
Opening Hours: 9:30am to 6:30pm

Art and Garden is the product of years of gardening by glass artist Fuan Wong. Starting his collection of plants at home, it eventually became too big, and had to be moved to his family’s durian orchard. The 8-acre land now boasts not only an abundance of flora, but also a variety of the artist’s glass sculptures, paintings, and colourful mosaic. Installation art by other artists and ceramicists can also be found in the garden.
