Talenia Phua Gajardo

Talenia is the head Art & Design Hunter and CEO of The Artling. She is a Loke Cheng-Kim Foundation scholar and received her BA (Hons) Architecture from Central Saint Martin’s in London. In 2013, as she was working on various interior design and architecture projects, she discovered that there were no aggregated online platforms to discover contemporary art in the region; The Artling was thus founded to fill this gap in the market. Prior to The Artling, Talenia founded her own interior architecture and design practice which she started after working for Zaha Hadid Architects for several years in London.

Talenia’s life passions are intertwined with the world of contemporary art, architecture and design. She has served as design judge for Dezeen’s Awards, was on Hong Kong’s Design Trust benefit committee for three consecutive years and was a Milken Institute Young Leader Circle member. She has also spoken at numerous international conferences and has been part of panels for UBS, DBS, The Milken Institute, Facebook, SuperReturn Asia, Dezeen, Art Basel and STPI.
