2011 - Visual Arts II

Pos Malaysia released a set of three stamps on topic of Visual Arts on September 19, 2011. This is the second series of the visual art issue. The first series of Visual Arts stamps were released on August 28, 2008.

I saw the poster and banner of this Visual Arts issue in post offices a few days before the date of issue. The 60s stamp was quite appealing among the three stamps in the poster/banner. However, I was totally taken aback when I saw the real stamps on the date of issue. The 60s stamp is the ugliest one, and this might have been due to the over-dose of colour of the 60s stamp. Instead, I quite like the 90s stamp - simple and clean.
