Two artworks by Malaysian artist Haffendi Anuar are now in Britain's historic Ashmolean Museum’s collection, after he won the museum’s Vivien Leigh Prize.

This prize is offered for a 2D work of art on paper, by a student at the Ruskin School of Art at Oxford University. The winning submission is chosen by the Ashmolean’s curator of modern and contemporary art. The artwork will then be included in the museum’s collection.
