Yisulang Art Gallery home of contemporary Chinese fine arts, previously occupied the upper two floors of a beautifully restored peranakan house in Pagoda Street, a few doors away from the Chinatown Heritage Museum. Today Yisulang Art Gallery has relocated to a beautiful new space in the centre of the city of Singapore also known as the ‘arts and heritage district’.  It is neighbour to the Singapore Art Museum, the National Museum of Singapore and the Istana (President’s Residence); and just some distance away are 2 reputable Art academy namely the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts and the LASALLE College of the Arts. In this rarefied atmosphere, it occupies two floors of the newly-built Luxe building, with a total of seven hundred square meters of exhibition space and state-of-the-art museum lighting and display facilities.

The main directional focus of Yisulang Art Gallery is on creating an awareness of contemporary Chinese fine arts, on cultivating a familiarity, and an intimacy, between the audience and the art, bridging the stereotyped ideology that has erected a false barrier between traditionalism and modernism and, quite simply, eliciting a keen appreciation of the Chinese art of our era.  The Yisulang Art Gallery thus enjoys an impressive heritage and a formidable reputation.  It is dedicated to building on these in its efforts to foster and promote Chinese art.

The Yisulang Art Gallery is renowned for its success in bringing contemporary Chinese ink painting artists to the public outside China. Over the years, it made close contact with a wide range of people in China’s art community – artists, critics, academics, exhibitors and collectors. The works that have been exhibited present a panoramic view of paintings from China and exhibitions have included fresh and exciting work by that country’s best upcoming artists.  In 2004, the Yisulang Art Gallery became the first Singaporean gallery to participate in an exhibition at the prestigious National Art Museum of China in Beijing.  This Exhibition of New Freehand Chinese Ink Paintings by Invited Artists won acclaim from both academics and critics, as did the 2006 exhibition, Ink and Sex, at the Beijing Brewery (Jiuchang) International Art Complex.

Opening hours:
