Another year has flown by and we're nearing the end of 2022! Before we move into the new year, we reflect on the year that has passed and some of our accomplishments. The world re-opened, and we were pleased to still see strong interest in supporting artists and designers from all over the world. We worked on some exciting projects this year such as public murals, office spaces and hotels, and we even presented an exhibition in Zurich. Read on to find out more!

Capella Hotels and Resorts announced the highly anticipated opening of its first Australian property in March 2023Capella 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."
 

The Launch of our Curated Art & Design NFT Collection

Explosion by Françoise Chadelas

The Artling launched our NFT Marketplace this year! With our NFT marketplace, we wanted to look beyond the speculation and build long-term value. Our aim is to enable creators, be it painters, sculptors or photographers, to expand their current practices and create new bodies of work, as well as to bridge the gap between the physical and the digital art and design worlds. For our NFT marketplace, we used Startrail, a blockchain infrastructure used for issuing and managing NFTs, built by Startbahn, using polygon.

This past march, New York-based artist Daniel Arsham completed his residency at the Fari Art Atelier, a collaboration between Patina Maldives and The Artling. The Fari Art Atelier is a series of art residencies bringing acclaimed artists to the island to create artworks and engage with the unique surroundings. The awe-inspiring surroundings and the seclusive, remote nature of Patina Maldives are key to nurturing artists’ creativity in which their artistic process guides guests of the island on an uplifting journey of productive thought.
 

Unveiling of our Latest Mural on Duxton Hill

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.
