It’s a hybrid of gallery and café.
Cruising along Victoria Street towards Bugis, you will see this eye-catching shophouse with gray walls which is visibly seen from the main road. Artistry is located on this short street called Jalan Pinang but it’s located at the corner of the street. Other than serving a good variety of cakes, this café lives up to its name. Artistry is a hybrid gallery and art café that exhibits art pieces. When I was there, works by ceramics artists featuring tableware and other ceramics functional ware, t-shirts and cloth bags drawn by artists were on display. I do understand the exhibits change regularly so it will be good to check out their facebook page before heading down.
Prashant, one of the cafe owners, is a performing artist himself. With natural pieces of wood that he found, he creatively constructed and assembled together some personalized benches for both the interior and al fresco sitting of the cafe. Instead of buying ready-made shelves, he recycled some wooden crates to display the ceramics exhibit.
Back to the food, I tried the Waffles with a single scoop of Fig & Honey ice-cream ($11). The waffles’ texture was absolutely light and crispy on the outside and served slightly warm. However, the ice- cream was too creamy for me but the fig and streaks of honey inside kind of made the taste special. Prices at this café are nett.
PS: The alfresco seating outside is a lovely place to people-watch on a nice, cool evening.
