Art Now Singapore

Now that fully vaccinated Singaporeans can hang out in groups of 5, many are exploring new places to visit and looking for unique things to do. For those who enjoy both art and culture, why not visit a museum that offers both. 

Tucked away in Raffles Hotel Singapore is Art Now, an art gallery that makes creative designs and intriguing art pieces accessible to the public with free admission. Spanning 6 units, the space also includes a retail showroom, design gallery and exhibition rooms. 

Unique Bearbricks on display

For those who are not aware, Bearbricks originated in Japan. The figures are only released as a series twice a year, contributing to its rarity and hefty price tag. In Art Now, you will find a wide array of Bearbricks collectables that are available for purchase.

The bear-like figures feature collaborations with familiar characters such as Pikachu, Rilakkuma and Mickey Mouse.

Each of the figures is stored in a plastic casing to prevent the accumulation of dust and to keep them in pristine condition. While you can’t touch them, you can admire and take pictures together with these rare items. 

Wax Figures

If travelling to Madame Tussauds Singapore is too much of a hassle, you can also find wax figures in Art Now.

However if plan on keeping things PG-friendly, you might want to blur out the words on the basketball as they read f*** you lah – a classic Singaporean phrase. 

Fine Art And Other Fashion Accessories 

For serious art collectors who are looking for new pieces to take home, Art Now has seasonal collections by various designers and artists.
