More about Pipal Fine Art
Before venturing into this industry, Artfolio was actually an extension of the venture of Say Yong who was into interior design. This came about in Singapre before establishing its stand in City Square in Ampang. It would then move to Avenue K before to Jalan Jelatek where it was one of the most popular art spaces in the Klang Valley.
The Pipal Fine Art name
The name of the gallery came from the Pipal tree. This is one tree which is known for longeveity, stong roots and huge size. This tree grew outside the home of the founders in their hometown Janda Baik. In 2013, Pipal Fine Art expanded its wings to China where it opened the Pipal Gallery in Guangzhou’s Canton Place. This serves as a bridge which will bring together the different cultures while expanding the horizon for the artists represented by the gallery. Today, Pipal Fine Art is involved not only in exhibitions but bringing together art lovers and artists to enjoy the host of artworks available. Besides that, Pipal Fine Art is involved in providing projects, commissioned works, rental of art and event management, among others.
