About us:

ORIENTALIS  started as an Art Gallery in Kensington, London. We are now based in Singapore and Makati City, Manila's business district.

Our gallery-brand "MemoriesOfTheOrient" has an extensive collection of Original Fine Art Photography and truly stunning Historical Maps

of manila, the Philippines, Asia, the World and Celestial Maps. This unique collection has been featured in the media - lastly in Business "Mirror" February 2023:


We now offer our most beautiful Historical Maps as highest quality reproductions with light-fast pigments on heavy cotton canvas. Unlike most other reproductions, these are not cheap ink-on-paper-replicas, but museum-grade reproductions with best available materials, pigments from Japan, heavy cotton canvas from Germany and an absolutely superb printing quality.  We also create our own, hand-made wooden frames in vintage style.

Stunning also are our Fine Art Photographs, which have been exhibited in over thirty renowned museums and exhibitions worldwide - they are also offered by the famous Saatchi Gallery in Los Angeles . (Last exhibitions include the Ayala Museum in Makati City).

We ship worldwide and are open to international and local partnerships.     

Kind regards from Makati City,
