This beautiful painting has been commissioned especially for GWA and produced by local artist Batik Ying to celebrate the festive season.

Featuring the classic Christmas ballet The Nutcracker against the backdrop of the Great Western Arcade, the painting, created using the traditional Malaysian batik wax resist technique, will be displayed in the window of unit 23-24 until New Year.

You can also have the chance to create your very own batik masterpiece with Batik Ying as she open her Pop-Up Shop in unit 23-24 from 11th-20th December.
