The 8th edition of Nando’s Malaysia annual art competition has just been launched and this year, the restaurant is opening an art gallery at one of their outlets.

With an aim to support the local arts, Nando’s Malaysia has turned the entire floor of LOT 123, Nando’s Chinatown outlet into a space for young and talented artists to showcase their artworks.

According to Hot Xpress, Ian Cruddas, CEO of Nando’s Chickenland Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. said,

“Instead of using the space to expand the restaurant, we felt that converting it into a venue for artists would make more sense for our art initiative programme. This will be an outlet dedicated to the arts without any commission incurred on the pieces sold. This represents our commitment and investment in nurturing these talented individuals.  With this new venture we are now able to host art exhibitions, workshops or event mentorship programmes for these new talents.”
