From what Leonard has demonstrated at the recent Wall To Wall Benalla greatly showcases the great talents that can be found in Malaysia. For a long time now, Melbourne is known as one of the world’s great street art capitals for its unique expressions of art found almost everywhere throughout the city and the region. It is such a great place to have an art cultural experience. I can’t wait to take a look at this year’s submissions and see more Malaysian talents making their mark at the Wall to Wall".
