Art Supplies Shops in PJ and KL
This list of Art Supplies Shops in PJ and KL was created in July 2017 for anyone wanting to know where you can find them in the Klang Valley.
In Malaysia, some people are into the art and craft scene; therefore, we came out with this list to share the information.
Most of the art supplies shops in PJ and KL are pretty scattered as there is no one area where you can find them all. This means there is a bit of travelling to do if you need to get special items.
Some art supplies shops in PJ and KL sell the required general items, while other art shops may be specialized in certain areas. And a lot of the items are usually imported from other countries.

Below is the list of places that sell art supplies in the Klang Valley area. Most of them are located in shops or shopping malls.
It is also recommended that you call the shops to see if they have the items you are looking for versus running around to find that they do not have the art supplies you need.
