About us:

MemoriesOfTheOrient started as an Art Gallery in Kensington, London. We have since transferred to Asia (Singapore and Manila).

Our Fine Art Photographs are also represented by the famous Saatchi Gallery in Los Angeles .

MemoriesOfTheOrient has an extensive collection of Original Fine Art Photography and Historical Maps. These unique maps have now been incorporated into our Fine Art Gallery. And we are excited to offer these 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 highest reproductions with best available materials, pigments from Japan, heavy cotton canvas from Germany and an absolutely superb printing quality. 

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

Kind regards from Singapore,

Memories Of The Orient
