Artsphere 20/8ty, The Atmosphere

80 3D murals drew by 20 talented artists, a new place to be in Klang Valley ( such a good news to all the peeps of Klang Valley, now we have our very own murals place to take photos! No need to go to Penang already!!!) 

Here I introduce you:

The Atmosphere, Seri Kembangan

My pleasure to be invited as one among the first to see the murals at The Atmosphere, and I tell you, waking up early to attend the launch was never a regret on that day to me because me and Jean had so much fun! Although the location might be a tad bit far for Setapakians like me (around 45mins drive), but it worth all the effort to get there and see all the never-seen before 3D murals in Malaysia!

Artists and the locations of the murals

The locations of the murals are scattered around the shop lots and buildings at The Atmosphere area, so you won't know what surprises you'll get when you turn around the corner, there are always surprises waiting. To me, it feels like a treasure hunt, looking at maps and search for the next treasure until finish find all 80 3D murals! 

These murals are not for "Please don't touch", but welcome everyone to interact with them. You can climb, lie down, touch, wanna lick also can if you don't mind, to squeeze the creativity out from your brain to create a unique photos of your own. 80 of them, can you handle???

Cool invitation card for the launch!
Major love!

Carnival-themed launch, love the happy vibes

The Artsphere 20/8ty project's main organizer is The Atmosphere, Tourism Selangor and ArtMisfits. The official launch was kicked start with an opening speech by Mr. Khoo Boo Hian, CEO of Tempo Properties.

After the programme of the launch ended, me and Jean went around The Atmosphere and crazily took a lot of photos of each other. The 3D murals are so beautiful and real, who say Malaysia don't have talented artists? You just need to let them show!

Hahaha I'm trying to board on to the train but the door won't open!!!

(crossed out one wish from my bucket list hahahaha)

Besides interacting with the murals, you can let your smartphone interact with them too! By download a QR code scanner into your phone, there's a QR code besides the wall art, by scanning them you can get tons of information about the artist and information of the respective wall art.

These are just a small fragments of what Artsphere 20/8ty at The Atmosphere have to offer. Since this is a new area, soon there will be more and more cafes, restaurants, shops opening, definitely will draw more crowds to this area. So do visit this area ASAP before this area are crowded by people that you'll have to queue to take photos with all the wall arts!
