Martell presents : Martell Live in Singapore – A unique, livestreamed gastronomic talk show, featuring international chefs and cultural changemakers who’s audacious work is making waves across the world. An evening of inspiring conversation, food and drink from the people pushing culture forward.
He’s an international DJ and co-owner of the global creative collective- Yeti Out. Yeti Out was born out of a music blog that Arthur started whilst studying at University in the UK with his flatmate, Eri and twin brother, Tom. Arthur’s ethos is to unite the East and West through music, fashion, art and conversation.
Arthur has gained a reputation for always pushing the envelope on what’s the norm and challenging the status quo. Arthur says it’s important to keep pushing new ideas because there needs to be more options to whatever is dominant. He believes that it’s the nurturing of the less-than-norm ideas that allow creative to come into fruition. Arthur’s natural instinct to reject the conventional was picked up last year when Palladium featured Arthur in their #DareTheUnknown series. The series celebrated, “those who explore urban environments with a bold and audacious attitude. Embracing the unexpected everyday and conforming only to their own expectation.” Arthur was involved in this campaign along with rapper Octavian and gender-defying model, Jazzelle.
