WELCOME TO SHANGRI-LA ART GALLERY
Shangri-La Art Gallery specializes in contemporary arts from Asia and the Near-East.
Our Artists are professionals and up-and-coming in their own countries.Their tastes
and styles are indicative of their countries of origins, and the influences of their
society and governments.While saying that, we also believe that contemporary
art is a form of universal expression. While customs may differ from region
to region and country to country, artists have found commonality with their mediums
and forms of expression.
The experiences of collectors, as well as the novices will see in our art similarities
between Chinese, Vietnamese, Indian and Macedonian Art.
The Artists and the way that they express themselves through their arts have truly
transcended to make art as universal language that we can all understand and appreciate.
While acknowledging that art is a personal choice and is to be appreciated, we believe
that art should also be a sound investment. Art does not lose value. In fact
a prudent investment in an art portfolio will see a return of many times over the
long term. We aim to position our art as an alternative to
the traditional investment
vehicles, just like stock, property, gold, coins, etc.....
At the same time, art is an investment that can be hung on your
wall for you to
enjoy everyday, bringing you enjoyment and a greater quality of life.
THE MEANING OF SHANGRI-LA:
Our gallery is named after the mythical land called Shangri-La in the book Lost
Horizon written by James Hilton. It is a beautiful land, a verdant valley
surrounded by snow-capped mountains. The people of Shangri-La are happy and peaceful,
live in harmony with nature, and are content with their lives. Due to the stress-free life, and a combination of healthy diet, meditation and yoga, they lead long
We thought the name Shangri-La was appropriate for our art gallery. In today’s
stress-prone and busy lives, by bringing art into our homes, we create joy and peacefulness
into our immediate surroundings.
