In a way, I was looking forward to what this exhibition had to offer, in terms of contemporary practice. Man, was I blown away.

The emotive power of maps captured in artistic expression

By Suraya Warden

Exhibition Review: Artistic mapping is a cool idea. It is visually fun and has a point; one that works extremely well for the South Asian art scene as ‘Cartographical Lure’, the previous exhibition at Valentine Willie Fine Art, proves.

Investing in Art with Valentine Willie: A BFM 89.9 podcast

It’s an accessible, down-to-earth introduction on the hows and whys of investing in art in Malaysia. He makes particularly pertinent comments about the realities of our small market, compared to those of Indonesia and the Philippines. You also get the backstory on the origins of his unique name.
