Art exhibition in Singapore. ARTualize is the only art gallery in Singapore that lets you rent paintings for your home.  A big group of students is crowding around Singapore artist Low Hai Hong as he shares with them the inspiration for his paintings in the art gallery.


All of us have different reasons for starting this journey on how to appreciate paintings. It could be a work necessity, to forge closer ties with business partners. It could be a new hobby, to learn more about the world around us. It could be an answer to a calling, a need to understand more in order to connect more with oneself.

Whatever your reason for beginning this journey on how to appreciate paintings, I hope that you have been enjoying yourself thus far, accumulating knowledge of the world, and art, and yourself.

Learning how to appreciate paintings is often a beautiful, emotional and solitary journey: we look at expressions of another human to feel for answers within ourselves by ourselves. It is a mysterious journey, where we do not know where or when we may arrive. It is a tough journey, where we are confronted with things that we are not used to.

But it will definitely be a rewarding journey.

We have come together thus far, and I hope we can continue this journey together, appreciating paintings.
