Nando’s Art Initiative was created as a platform for youth with artistic talents to bring forward their creative skills. Holding on to its true objective, the exhibition aims to give the participants a chance to showcase their capability to the public. Art collectors who are keen to have the inspirational artworks may own a piece of that ingenuity through an open silent auction with RM500 starting bid.
