K+ is proud to present a very special exhibition, co-organised with local charity organisation Very Special Arts Singapore, from 18 May to 24 June 2018. From idyllic kampung scenes to dappled landscapes of Singapore and beyond, “The View From Here” shines the spotlight on seven talented artists who use art to share their unique points of view with the rest of the world.

Profusion of Colours – VSA Art Exhibition 2018
Venue: Public Art Space at Pan Pacific Singapore (Level 2)
Dates: 2 April to 30 May 2018

In collaboration with Pan Pacific Singapore, a series of 3 art exhibitions featuring artworks by VSA’s artists with disabilities will be showcased at the hotel’s public art space from February to July 2018. A total of 9 artists (grouped according to themes) will be participating in these exhibitions to present and sell their art pieces to the public.

For the love of art, sports and his family, Gregory Burns travels around the world frequently. His paintings are often rich in colours, imagery and text to express the intentions and yearnings of this itinerant artist. Besides Gregory, we are also showcasing artworks by Eugene Soh and Joshua Tang, who are both bold in the use of colours in creating abstract pieces. Together, their expressions of colours will wow the audience effortlessly.
