Art Porters

Chinatown & the CBD

Located in a cute-as-a-button shophouse, the ethos of this art gallery is to share happiness with art. It exhibits contemporary artworks by local and international artists in many mediums, including sculpture, painting, photography, digital animation and drawing. Outside, you'll find the heritage mural 'provision shop' by Yip Yew Chong, on the side wall of 8 Spottiswoode Park Rd.
