Maya Gallery and Sultan Gate Restaurant (now Dhia) are pleased to announce their collaborative exhibition, ARTERY, featuring works by Singapore artists. Launching on 25 June 2021 over a month, these pieces will be available for viewing and retail at Sultan Gate Restaurant located at 29 Sultan Gate.
Sultan Gate Restaurant is a halal restaurant serving modern European cuisine in historic Kampong Glam and each dish is curated perfectly to perfection alongside beautiful works of art!
Maya Gallery, an award-winning home-grown art gallery with a focus on heritage, culture and Singapore art, has showcased close to 70 exhibitions internationally by more than 100 artists within a span of nine years.
“Art and food have a unique synergy. Having lived in Europe and experienced its culinary culture, we knew that we would open a restaurant in Singapore involving art. I met Jeffrey and Masturah, the owners of Maya Gallery, at one of their exhibitions and I immediately wanted to work with them.”
- Chris Goh, owner of Sultan Gate Restaurant
Artery will feature Valerie Ng, Terence Tan, Deusa Blumke, Idris Ali, Jeffrey Wandly and Masturah Sha’ari. From paintings and collages to photography, the exhibition aims to show a wide range of works inspired by stories of each artist’s personal experiences and observations of their surroundings and environment.
Valerie Ng, who won a Bronze prize in the UOB Painting of the Year Singapore and was a finalist in the Sovereign Asian Art Prize in Hong Kong, both in 2018, explores the concept of old and new through painted paper collages. The works of Deusa Blumke, who holds an MFA from LaSalle College of the Arts, are inspired by material manipulation and the unconscious mind, dealing with expression, form, line and colour. Terence Tan, a finalist in ArtGemini Prize 2019 (London) and second runner-up in #OurHawkerCulture 2019, interprets the interconnectedness and ever-changing realities of public spaces in his photography.
With this timely and meaningful collaboration, Sultan Gate Restaurant hopes to provide an alternative platform for Singapore artists to exhibit and sell their works. If you are an art lover and loves to dine, come and show your support for local businesses and the art scene!
