"Make us laugh. Make us cry. But most of all, make us think."
The urban art gallery 28th Février showcases a dynamic mix of paintings, sculptures and furniture pieces. The 8,000 sq.ft. venue has four separate rooms to organize the artworks by themes, creating an environment that enables individual identification with art. We allow emotions, self-reflection and deeper analysis, showing art pieces that people can relate to.
With a personal collection worth over millions of dollars, 28th Février is never at a loss of inspiration to find new artists and their out-of-the-box creations. The focus is set on collecting and archiving the work of both world famous and also upcoming artists. Visitors can expect a mixture of rare graffiti pieces, sought-after street art, traditional Chinese paintings and unique furniture pieces.
The gallery is integrated in the OOZI Clubhouse, a pre-war British officer’s mansion with a black and white facade, located in the green surroundings behind Orchard Road.
Visitors walk through four light-flooded rooms that show graffiti works by world-famous artist Kongo and striking paintings by “Sticker Lady” Samantha Lo. After showcasing her street art on public property, the famous Singaporean was sentenced to community service but at the same time celebrated by the local art community. On the gallery's wooden floor, the three-dimensional, rollable canvases by world-beater "3D Joe and Max" change the visitor's perception of space.
28th Février is also proud to exhibit "hyper-realism" sculptures by Jamie Salmon, who sold his works to Hollywood Stars like Al Pacino. The gallery's artworks have one thing in common: challenging the observer and questioning his sense of reality.

We support the dialogue between artist and observer through personal tours, talks and events because it breathes life into the creation. “The artist’s intention and his work process are important for us because most techniques require long and arduous training. That illustrates fine craftsmanship of our times, and you can apply it to art, photography or precious watches.” says Dominic Khoo.
