Maybank Chairman, Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Zamzamzairani Mohd Isa said that the Bank is pleased to be reopening Balai Seni Maybank which is a key platform to promote art works of local artists and raise awareness of Malaysia’s rich artistic talents and its numerous forms of art. “After more than a two-year hiatus, our Balai Seni returns, and we are excited to reconnect with the artists and art lovers from across the country. This latest exhibition is very close to our heart as it underlines the importance of independence while showcasing the diversity and creativity of the arts, as well as the joys of appreciating the many iterations and interpretations of fine arts through the lens of young and emerging local artists.”

The art exhibition brings together comics or sequential art that has long appealed to the younger generation due to its image-rich medium. The art exhibition will be open to the public from 10am to 5pm (Monday to Friday) and 11am to 4pm (Saturday) until 30 September 2022. Admission to Balai Seni Maybank which is on the first floor of Menara Maybank is free.
