The Artling Appointed Art Consultant for Capella Sydney!
Capella Hotels and Resorts has just announced the highly anticipated opening of its first Australian property in March 2023. Capella Sydney is the culmination of a stunning transformation of the heritage-listed Department of Education Building into a luxury hotel that will welcome guests and patrons for the first time in the building's history. The Artling is thrilled to be involved in the project as the appointed art consultant, which will involve an Australian-focused collection. The Artling's Director Talenia Phua Gajardo, says "Australia is full to the brim with talented artists and this project is an amazing opportunity to showcase many of these creatives throughout the various spaces of these sprawling heritage properties. It is so great to be working with the visionary team at Pontiac Land Group again - we all have a clear vision of integrating the important history of the building with the new life it will take on, with art playing an extremely vital role in its identity." Occupying an entire city block, encircled by Loftus, Bridge, and Young Streets, this historic building is nestled in close proximity to Sydney's commercial, arts, and cultural districts and at the heart of Sydney's latest retail and hospitality precinct. Paying homage to the city's rich history, the re-imagined stylish and contemporary interiors juxtapose the old-world heritage charm, creating a serene atmosphere and a peaceful escape from the bustling surrounds of Circular Quay and the northern Sydney CBD.

tobyato Unveils His Latest Mural on Duxton Hill
Singaporean artist Toby Tan, better known as tobyato makes a statement with his largest vertical mural to date in the bustling neighbourhood of Tanjong Pagar. Inspired by the history of Tanjong Pagar as a fishing village, the mural pays homage to a Singapore Malay tale of the battle between local villagers and swordfish led by a heroic young boy, Hang Nadim. By using stems from banana trees, Hang Nadim combated charging swordfish and protected the villagers from the attack. Emblazoned on the building are two swordfish swimming in a pool of abstract waves. One of them has its snout pierced into a banana stem, a direct reference to how the villagers defeated the attack of the swordfish. In collaboration with 8M Real Estate, this bold and eye-catching mural adds more life and character to an already full-spirited area, serving as a reminder of the city’s rich history to its dwellers. The Artling speaks more with Toby on his mural and plans for the future.
