About us

Vallette Gallery represents Malaysian and international artists in paintings, sculptures, photographies and art installations, and is looking to build a trusting and strong relationship between artists, art lovers and friends.

In Kuala Lumpur, Vallette Gallery is promoting Malaysian artists in Malaysia as a first step of recognition in their own country, but also making a point of showcasing the artwork in France, in order to expose the most established Malaysian artists in Europe. Valette Gallery also aims to offer a forum for contemporary art, presenting works by both emerging young Malaysian artists and international artists.

Vallette Gallery seeks not only to back current events that bring communities together, but more importantly become a centre for art lovers. The gallery encourages creative excellence by providing an environment for communication, expertise, sharing and mentoring within the community of artists.

“We are looking to Malaysian and Asian art to create a real platform between continents and promote art in all its different forms, and we believe that providing a unique art experience to our visitors is essential. Our exhibitions, social events and art talks give them an insight into the contemporary Malaysian and international art market.

Vallette Gallery is committed to building a new momentum within the Malaysian art scene, by showing works of art that can expand horizons, open minds and view the world and life in general through different eyes.

Art is not just decoration for our walls, but a connection with our deep inner selves and the world around us.”

Patrice Vallette, Founder and Director of Vallette Gallery

Montessori parent-kid workshop at Vallette Gallery

On the 7th November 2015, Vallette Gallery welcomed two groups of Montessori school children and their parents to learn about what an artwork is and how to appreciate art in the family.

While the children discovered the gallery’s exhibited art pieces and interpreted colours, shades and sizes, their parents discussed with teacher Swee Theam Lam Holloway what to experience as a family in a museum and how to approach to art and painting. We are looking forward to our next exhibition in January and it’s youngest visitors!

Home Schoolers visit Vallette Gallery

On Wednesday, 7 October 2015, Vallette Gallery welcomed a group of home schooled kids of different age to the Galactic Highway exhibition. Donald Abraham’s and Soni Irawan’s personal and universal worlds were like a huge cosmic playground – the children discovered Abraham’s space dogs, ninja turtles and all the shades of colours he worked with. Being able to explore not only what a gallery is, but to discuss the unhappy WiFi People in Irawan’s canvases and philosophize about the meaning of a symbol was a unique experience for the kids as well as for Vallette Gallery.

Donald’s and Soni’s Cosmos in Context from Street to Gallery

Isn’t Street Art supposed to be in the streets? And when did it turn from vandalistic graffiti to “art”? Curator Charlotte Cousins will give an ArtTalk to discuss the movement of Street Art internationally, including how the street moved into the gallery, an introduction into prominent street artists and how they work and how the art of Donald Abraham and Soni Irawan fits into this context. The evening will host a special guest. The ArtTalk will be hosted by ABSOLUT and Vallette Gallery. We are looking forward to talk with you!
