  • Quaint little shop that offers some excellent photographic prints and other artworks. The prints of the old buildings and its elements are well composed and full of stoic details. The owner is very helpful and friendly. Well worth the visit and the purchases.
  • Interesting art and prints by penang-based artists like Howard Tan and Thomas Powell. We loved to see Howard Tan's birdmen and Powell's zodiac circle. Recommended.
