Tell us what Art Loft is all about.
Art Loft is a platform that features interesting Asian contemporary artists. We go beyond the artwork to share their creative process which often goes unheard. Through collaborations in both physical and virtual spaces, we hope to break down conventional barriers and encourage everyone to discover, learn and collect art.

Who do you work with?
We collaborate with art spaces, organizations and schools to build greater exposure for artists to showcase their works.

What does Art Loft have planned for the year?
During the month of December, we'll be collaborating with The Old Parliament House for our online charity initiative, For Art's Sake, on our website. Part of the sales proceeds from selected artworks will be donated to The Business Times Budding Artist Fund, an initiative of The Old Parliament House that seeks to provide art education to disadvantaged children and youth.

Any plans to hold a physical exhibition?
We do have an intimate, creative space in a shophouse along Mohamed Sultan Road, which we currently use as a showroom and for meetings with our partners and clients. In 2014, we're also looking at exploring a rotating gallery format to showcase emerging artists in different venues, including Design Hub and other spaces.
