Straddling both fine art and fashion to dazzling effect, the multi-faceted and sassy Talenia Phua Gajardo is the CEO/Founder of both The Artling and Luxglove.com. The first, a curated online gallery, features some of the most prominent names in contemporary fine Southeast Asian art. Luxglove, meanwhile, is an online secondary marketplace for art and luxury lifestyle items, spanning art, design, watches, jewelry, and rare whisky. Her keen eye for these key areas shouldn’t come as a surprise considering her design and architecture background includes working for Zaha Hadid Architects in London for several years after graduating with a BA (Hons) in Architecture from Central Saint Martins. Not one to rest on her fine art laurels (after all, her daily mantra is “nothing worth having comes easy”), Talenia is already working on a couple of noteworthy projects to be unveiled in the coming months, including a 3D-printing show embracing the latest in technical innovation, and a traveling art show featuring 12 up-and-coming regional artists.
