It was brought to Malaysia for the first time just last year, by Ruby Subramaniam, who had been so thrilled from joining Art Battle Brasil she just had to start one here. Check out the story on the first ever event here. 

And now she’s at it again for Art Battle #2, which will be held at Inti Subang this weekend. 

What’s more, it will be held for two days this time and together with a string of other art opportunities that makes it a mini-fest galore!

Come for Art Battle this time, not just to watch some incredibly talented artists battle it out but to get to know other artists and people who are interested in the local art scene,” says Ruby.

Basically, if you’re the kind who loves art but not up for the intense spotlight of art battle, you can join up with Doodle Malaysia for a totally Lepak Doodle session. There’s also Urban Sketching by KL Sketch Nation, who have basically painted the town in not only red, but a whole other level of hues and shades.
