Another must visit place in Singapore is the Artwork in Ritz-Carlton Millenia Hotel which houses 4,200 pieces of art including the artwork of the very popular Andy Warhol. Ritz-Carlton Millenia is surely not your typical hotel where you find luxury in relaxation, but it is also a place where you can see spectacular art gallery. I was really excited about this visit because this will be the first time that I’m gonna see real artwork of the world’s big art names that I can only see on TV or hear in the news.
It was said that The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore invested about US$4,000,000 for all displayed artwork in the entire hotel with fifty of it counts as museum quality. Let’s take a look!
This will greet you on the main entrance. This is Zhu Wei’s Mao Figures, life size sculptures in fiberglass.

This is an obligatory shot with 2 Warhol paintings. It’s surreal!
