Spearheaded by Malaysian famous speed painter, Haze Long (yes, that’s her in the featured picture), GoJyu5 is a place for everything art.
GoJyu5 is a gallery that mirrors Haze’s personality – colourful, bright & cheerful. The store features paintings done by the artist herself and mind you she completes each painting in only 5 minutes – tops! But for the more refined work of art, it does take longer than 5 minutes to complete them, some of which are also featured in the store.
GoJyu5 also offers art classes where walk-ins are also available. The friendly environment gel well with both the young and old. Workshops and classes that are offered at GoJyu5 include:
1) Life drawing – every last Sunday of the month
Time slot is fixed. Hence, registration is required as there is only limited space (15). Priced at RM 60/pax.
2) Art time
Suitable for kids & adults alike, this class teaches art enthusiasts to use all kinds of mediums for painting and so be prepared to journey through a time of discovery (materials provided).
