Hot! Hypebeast@Uni Brings Together Contemporary Art and Food Paying Homage to Pop Culture


From today onwards till March 2021, fans of contemporary pop culture and Japanese food are in for a treat with the launch of a collaboration that brings together contemporary art and specialist food in one setting.

Pop art gallery simpleArte by iCare.4u has teamed up with specialist sea urchin restaurant Uni Gallery at The Plaza on Beach Road to offer diners the chance to tap into the ‘hypebeast’ movement – with a series of collectible pop prints showcasing some of the world’s best-known contemporary artists.

Featuring original prints by leading visual proponents Takashi Murakami, Chiho Aoshima, Steven Harrington, Shen Jingdong and up-and-coming Dutch doodle artist Stijn Valentijn, the contemporary art will be for sale while diners eat. The art pieces, which will be on display in the main dining area and private dining rooms, will be refreshed every time a sale is made as guests look forward to new limited editions in a series of four shows.

“Hypebeast@Uni will offer diners the chance to experience modern street art first-hand as simpleArte brings an artistic perspective to the movement often characterized by high priced sneakers and urban streetwear.

You can buy a ‘Hypebeast’ t-shirt, get the insanely priced sneakers … and now you can also own a piece of iconic, limited-edition print from the same movement, ‘Hypebeast’ is the most contemporary of all street culture right now, and our artists are among the frontrunners.” said Glen Tay, curator at simpleArte.

10 percent of the proceeds of the sale will be going to the Children’s Society of Singapore.
