That's right! I had been to my first ever Artsphere in The Atmosphere @ Seri Kembangan a few days ago. The Atmosphere is a new shopping mall which serves as a hub for the arts, culture, nature, lifestyle and community. The retail lots at `The Atmosphere’ are ideal for specialty stores, showrooms, boutiques, bistros, cafes, restaurants and banks.
Well I'm being the typical *jakun* girl, snapping photos and posing like a wild kid here and there around the Atmosphere, which is currently filled with 80 3D and interactive murals. As you all know, I never been to any ART-istic places before, even the very bery feh-mes Penang Mural Street - I've not step my 'historical' foot on that beautiful piece of land lol!
Wondering why it was called the Artsphere 20/8 ty?
Well this concept pays tribute to the 20 talented artists, that awesomely created 80 pieces of mural artwork, making The Atmosphere the single location with the highest collection of mural art in Malaysia. What's more? These mural arts are 3D masterpieces that will interact with onlookers!
Mr Khoo Boo Hian - CEO of Tempo Properties, gave a welcome speech + a brief introduction about The Atmosphere.

The talented mural artistes!
After the grand opening performance, I continued my search-for-80-mural-arts-assignment with my friends - Stephanie and Carmen. We had a tough time searching for the EIGHTIES, and in the end we failed our assignment lol! We only found around like, 50 murals maybe?
Stephanie and Carmen happily showing off their Instagram invitation card!
Ready for the photos taken in the Artsphere? Actually we spent most of the time thinking what to pose, and which angle to take the photo, instead of exploring the location of 80 mural arts lol!
Do note that, there is a FOOTSTEP SIGN on the floor around the mural that signal you where to stand and take the photo! A QR CODE is placed beside the mural too, so public can just scan the QR code to get an idea of the mural and artist! Convenient isn't it? :)
Best photo of the day - their epic face expression!
