Art is not just a catalyst for cultural appreciation and conversations. It’s been proven that having art in our living and work spaces promotes mental health wellness and reduces stress. By decentralising the distribution of art, art gets to play a uniquely holistic role in raising the standard of wellness for occupants.
At Casa Mia Coliving, we like to interact with the communities around our homes. That is the spirit that brings us to partner with and support local businesses in Singapore, such as ArtWallStreet. “We’re extremely excited to be partnering with Casa Mia Coliving in integrating works of emerging artists into everyday living spaces. This partnership marks a shift in cultural perception that art should be isolated in the white box gallery to one where art is closely intertwined in the everyday life of people” said Taryn Mook, COO of ArtWallStreet.
With the limited number of art galleries in Singapore, it’s not easy for young, up and coming artists to be featured. ArtWallStreet is on a mission to change this, by giving them a chance to exhibit their works in “everyday” venues. Casa Mia has added coliving spaces to that mix. We liked the ArtWallStreet mission and wanted to join in. With our homes we saw a chance to provide another platform for local artists to showcase their work and communicate their messages to an audience who appreciates culture and creativity.
The audience is not only our members who live in our homes and their guests who visit them, but also potential members who view our virtual tours on our website. In this way, Casa Mia enables an extension beyond physical art galleries, reaching hundreds of viewers who browse our online tours each week.
“I’m really grateful to be a part of this movement initiated by ArtWallSt and Casa Mia Coliving. Let’s face it, our culture in Singapore revolves around food, shopping, work and a lot of chilling at home. So bringing art to everyday spaces is brilliant!” quipped Anit Kaur, a Singaporean self-taught artist.

On display at Casa Mia Coliving: Her Release, Our People, Faith in the Rain, and Music of Sunset
Anit Kaur is a self taught artist in Singapore. Her art is inspired by the beauty that exists in nature combined with the beauty of having faith during dark times. Conversations with her Grandmother as a young girl taught her that in happy times we should thank God, in difficult times we should pray to God, basically the message was that every moment (be it positive or sad times) is beautiful and belongs to our Higher Power.

At times experimental, my intuitive approach often leads me to new worlds of thought guided by the images materialising before my eyes.
