Event description
Italian poet, painter and chef Gabriel Fratini offers magnificent art pieces on sale to raise funds for Cycling Without Age Singapore

About this Event

SingaporeOn 9 November 2019, the doors of Fratini La Trattoria, a cosy Italian restaurant ensconced in Greenwood Avenue, Hillcrest Bukit Timah, will be opened from 11 am to 3 pm in an exclusive art exhibit and sale of over 50 paintings by Gabriel Fratini.

50% of the proceeds of sales will go to Cycling Without Age Singapore, a start-up charity that aims to beat social isolation in seniors by giving them free trishaw rides and the joy of wind in their hair.

"Doorway to Happiness" is a painting that will be auctioned on the 9th November with 100% of the proceeds going to CWA Sinapore. It is significant as Gabriel shares that his happiest moments have always been tied to being able to give back to community. For many years, Gabriel has held exhibits and donated towards charitable institutions supporting seniors and the youth.

Most of the paintings on sale are created by Gabriel using finger strokes to create a unique texture that marries abstract with reality. This technique is something he perfected over the years in creating paintings.

Similar to his previous restaurants, Gabriel’s paintings adorn the walls of Fratini La Trattoria, and his creations are entrancing and enticing. One would definitely want to take home a few pieces.

Gabriel first moved to Singapore over 30 years ago as head chef of DOMUS in Sheraton Towers after an extensive career with hotel groups around Europe and Asia. He later moved on to open Fratini La Trattoria, with the aim of giving people a unique dining experience by introducing non-menu dining in his restaurant.

He is also the author of Journey of a Lonely Man and I’m Not Just a Tree, which are compilations of his poetry based on his early life experiences. These books are available in the Singapore National Library.
