Founded by Dutch-born photographer Marcel Heijnen in 2012, this part-café, part-gallery space has a series of curated exhibitions on its walls all-year-round, often featuring artworks by lesser known local artists. By day, it serves up sandwiches, artisanal cakes and coffees. It’s also known to hold film screenings, parties and DJ sets in the evenings.
Since opening in May 2011, this boutique gallery has already featured established blue-chip artists from America, Europe and Japan such as Tracey Emin, Damien Hirst and Takashi Murakami, as well as modern masters such as Andy Warhol and Jackson Pollock. Ikkan firmly caters to the higher end of the market and exhibits an impressive collection of international contemporary art across a variety of styles.
