Insights, Strategy & the Idea
Vu privee is a French gallery based in Singapore with a special emphasis on encouraging Asian Art from around the region.
In a busy, bustling modern Asian city like Singapore, very few people seem to have the time or interest for art.
Could we remind people about the art and beauty that surrounds us everyday?
It’s just a matter of looking through the right frame and even ordinary unremarkable things could rival the breathtaking beauty of a Monet or a Dega.
Art is everywhere in the city. So we came up with the ambient idea of ‘Window Paintings’.

Creative Execution
Mundane views of Singapore were transformed to beautiful, live impressionist paintings. The distorting glass panes on windows around the city, altered ordinary details, objects and colours to make them look beautiful. The swirling small strokes and transient effects of light and colour reminiscent of impressionist art but with typically Asian vistas.

Results and Effectiveness
The simple yet unusual ambient medium used, furthered the creative image of the gallery in artistic circles. We saw a rise in enquiries and walk ins and ordinary cityfolk, who wouldn’t have given art a second look, stopped and stared to admire the suddenly special views of the window paintings all across the city.
