MemoriesOfTheOrient started as an Art Gallery in Kensington, London. We have since transferred to Singapore and have now (due to the pandemic) focused on our online presence. Our art works are also represented by the famous Saatchi Gallery in Los Angeles .
In 2008 MemoriesOfTheOrient purchased several hundred original historical maps. These unique maps have 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

And when the editor-in-chief of GEO (the famous magazine) published his photos from a warzone GEO
wrote “Per-Andre Hoffmann risks his head and neck for a good shot". Per-Andre says “basically, I presume
they meant "I was a young fool, who took on risky assignments very few in their clear mind would consider".
