And just like that, January gives way to February. Here are the best Malaysian artworks which we’ve come across to celebrate the first month of 2017! They come in all shapes, colors, sizes and commemorate a myriad of occasions, events and moments. Majority of these artworks were spotted and picked at the Doodle Malaysia – Do you doodle?
