Malacca Art

Went back to the quaint art gallery housed in a beautiful Perankan house along Jonker Street in Malacca. I blogged about this place earlier this year and I couldn't help but revisit it again during my recent trip. It is run by the family of Jehan Chan who has 3 art galleries in the vicinity. Jehan Chan is one of Malaysia's more successful artist and is famous for his paintings of prosperity carps and stylised collages of Sungei Malacca at sunset .

One of the galleries featured the works of his family including that of his son-in-law David, a true blue Baba who entertained me with my endless questions on Malacca . Bought a beautiful piece of his oil paintings featuring a fishing village. A collection of his paintings placed together on the wall at the gallery makes a beautiful display.

I was in Malacaa last year and fell in love with David's paintings but couldn't buy them at the time. Do you have an email address that I can reach him at? I live in Canada but would love to order some of his art.
