I was happy to receive a complimentary VIP pass for this year’s Singapore Contemporary, and so there is no reason not to go 🙂
There was a live demo by an artist who seems to paint effortlessly. When asked what tips to give to someone who wants to learn painting, he said, “dun teach them how to paint, but teach them to have the courage to paint”.. truly inspiring 😀
Some interesting sculptures by a ceramic artist, Solan Chiu.
It seems not only Korean dramas and K-pop have penetrated the market, but Korean artists are getting popular here too. We happened to talk to a Korean artist, Lim Seung Hyun, who was there to promote his artworks. I especially like his ink coloring on Korean rice paper.
We were attracted by this gallery, ART CENTER PPLUS, which features interesting sculptures, as well as oil on canvas artworks by Seung Hun Han, that we really like.
Some outstanding artworks by Chinese artists also caught our eyes, the most popular of which seems to be by Gao XiaoYun, who was there to witness the sales of his various masterpieces.
Another of my all-time favourites, Wang ZhiWu, whose style is so prominent and unique.
This artwork by Girjesh Kumar Singh, was created with the rubble of brick and mortar from demolished constructions.
The kawaii Wako-san sculptures are not to be missed too 🙂
Was happy to see my latest favourite again, Zorikto Dorzhiev, a Russian artist.
