A testament to its status as the leading art consultancy firm in the region, The Artling recently revealed its involvement in seven major art projects in the region.
These include hospitality-focused a triple-country assignment for co-working spaces The Great Room, One George Street (Singapore), The Great Room, Centennial (Singapore) and The Great Room, Gaysorn Tower (Bangkok, Thailand).
This is followed by work for the iconic nightclub Zouk (Singapore), and its sister bar, Red Tail (Singapore), and the soon-to-be-opened Zouk (Genting Highlands, Malaysia) located within the integrated leisure and entertainment complex of Resorts World Genting.
Finally, Straits Clan (Singapore), a members' club that just opened in Bukit Pasoh.
These project wins dovetail with The Artling's vision and goal to make art accessible to all and to enable their artists and galleries to reach new audiences.
"Our art consultancy projects are a means by which we can expand the reach of the artists, galleries and designers whom we work with. We've been extremely fortunate to have a very diverse client base who has been supportive of this vision of spreading art and culture."
"Through their patronage, they have enabled these talented creatives to have a voice by being on display in corporate and private collections. It’s a very integral part of society today," adds Talenia Phua Gajardo, Founder of The Artling.
For each of its mandates, the firm develops briefs with the client, coordinates with the interior designers and contractors, and liaises with the landscaping and lighting consultants, as part of its comprehensive approach to executing on its concepts.
Its portfolio so far has more impressive names, from Google, Twitter, Standard Chartered, Frasers Property to Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts, just to name a few. The Artling also works directly with private clients and collectors on their projects, advising on their personal art collections.
