    After the success of Voice of a Karung Guni in 2015, self-taught artist Tan Chong Bin returns with a new exhibition at AC43 gallery! “Classic Stamps” features over 20 works from Tan’s latest series of acrylic paintings, as well as selected mixed-media sculptures. The series, which began in 2015 and continued till 2016, comprises altogether 72 different creative designs inspired by the illustrative format of poster stamp. Born in Singapore in 1952, Tan is a rag-and-bone man by profession (also known in local colloquial term as “karung guni man”). Tan was never schooled; he is illiterate and speaks very minimal Mandarin, and usually communicates and expresses himself in Hokkien (a Chinese dialect). Tan’s passion for drawing flourished at the tender age of 8. Being uneducated and financially challenged did little to deter him from happily dedicating decades to art-making. Over the years he managed to observe and travel around Southeast Asia in a bid to learn more and enhance his art practice. In November 2014, Tan achieved an important milestone when his acrylic painting submission, 千变万画 (Endless Transformation) earned a Special Commendation award at the 2014 UOB Painting of the Year Competition in Singapore. Tan participated in his first group [...]

    HereNow @ SPRMRKT Daily in Robertson Quay showcases one one artwork at a time in a continuous, unceremonious flow that encourages quiet contemplation of the solo piece. Danielle Tay exhibits a piece titled “I need not much, only my imagination” until 25 July. Tay graduated from the Slade School of Fine Art with a B.A. First Class in 2014 but she had begun her art career far earlier. Her first exhibition was in 2008, and her work has been shown in Singapore, Hong Kong and London. She has also evolved her work style: she has accepted collaboration requests on commercial projects, such as large scale commissioned works for interior spaces. The Artist Statement – compressed ” This work titled ‘I need not much only my imagination’ is the third piece in a series which ruminates on the idea of mental space and how challenging it is to achieve a healthy mind in today’s fast-paced, technology driven world. This piece ventured more into the internal mind space that we create for ourselves. Astronomy features in this piece; the constellations, creatures of the sky. For me, this represents the imagination and the stories of the sky. What would we be without imagination? [...]

  • 07/15/17--03:03: Enchanting Landscape
  • Ranging from the semi-abstract urban landscapes of Ang Ah Tee to the realist-impressionist rural landscapes of Tan Choh Tee, Enchanting Landscapes features over 20 notable landscape scenes by 6 local artists. The exhibition also includes two Guilin landscapes in oil completed in 1975 by pioneer artist and art educator, Chen Jen Hao. The art of Chinese landscape painting evolved into an independent genre by the time of the Tang Dynasty (618 – 906). Although not formalised as a genre in the Western world till the 16th Century, the tradition of landscape painting easily dates back to ancient times when the Greeks and Romans first began creating wall paintings reflecting landscapes and gardenscapes. As times and cultures evolved, how would this classical subject matter translate in the artistic expressions of these Singapore artists who were trained in both Chinese and Western art practices? Artists: Ang Ah Tee Chen Jen Hao Eng Siak Loy Ho Sou Ping Tan Choh Tee Zhu Hong Exhibition Period: 22 – 30 July 2017 Time: 12 – 7pm(daily) Venue: artcommune gallery (address below) Contact Information: artcommune gallery 231 Bain Street Bras Basah Complex #03-39 Singapore 180231 T: +65 63364240M: +65 97479046 www.artcommune.com.sg

    A collaboration by Singaporean emerging artists Little Blue Moon (QQ Lee) and MaryAnn Loo, exploring the dynamics of alternate and coexisting viewpoints, through their whimsical petite paintings. “Two Worlds, and the Spaces Between” is their first duo exhibition, and a presentation of viewpoints to art forms and storytelling. QQ creates an open-ended “Space” between the audience and her works by pairing narrative and abstract paintings. Each pair explores how formal elements of art can be contrasting, and yet harmonising. At the same time, the narratives present alternate viewpoints to our world through the eyes of small beings residing in whimsical habitats. (Instagram: @little.blue.moon) MaryAnn explores themes of longing and separateness in her narrative watercolour paintings. Drawing from her own personal experiences and stories, her whimsical artworks toe the line between the illusory nature of romance and the truth about love and connection.

  • 07/29/17--05:51: Provoking Space
  • Mizuma Gallery is pleased to announce Provoking Space, a solo exhibition by Filipino artist, Mark Justiniani, well known for his installations that create an infinite depth of space. Behind space is a whole universe of mystery. It cradles all existence and promises so much more than can be believed. While space is transparent, it is also a veil hiding more wonders waiting to be encountered. There is no space which is not pregnant with possibilities. The shape shifting and warping of space reflects the shifting grounds of reality. It is reflective of human uncertainty and destiny. Provoking Space is a series of works that probes into the nature of space, its structure, malleability and its boundaries. The works also delve into the idea of infinities and its variants and how conscious beings like ourselves navigate these dimensions as we struggle to break through and move towards unknown destinations. Artist Talk Sunday, 20 August 2017, 4 – 5 pm Moderated by Sidd Perez, Assistant Curator of NUS Museum Opening Reception Sunday, 20 August 2017, 5 – 7 pm Exhibition Dates Sunday, 20 August 2017 – Sunday, 17 September 2017 About the Artist Mark Justiniani (b. 1966, Bacolod City, Philippines) is often [...]

    In celebration of Singapore’s 52nd anniversary of independence, The Private Museum is proud to present Benny Ong: Walking the Thought. This solo exhibition marks the first showcase of works by the renowned fashion designer and textile artist, Benny Ong at The Private Museum. Along with other textile works centred on Buddhist themes, the exhibition revisits a series of Ong’s older works from his inaugural textile exhibition titled, Re-woven: A Celebration of Lives opened at the Singapore Arts Museum a decade ago. Ong’s artistic practice traces back to the roots of his spiritual beliefs. The body of textile works is a reflection of the artist’s interpretation of the Buddha’s teachings based on inner contemplation, peace, dualism, compassion and meditation. Although the series of textile works was inspired by the values and teachings of Buddhism, the exhibition reveals a deeper layer of Ong’s artistic practice. Through the use of succinct imagery, Ong bridges his spiritual beliefs with art making—compelling the viewer to get a closer glimpse of his thoughts and processes. Benny Ong: Walking the Thought Date: Friday, 4 August – Sunday, 24 September 2017 Opening Hours: 10am – 7pm (Monday – Friday) | 11am – 5pm (Saturday & Sunday) *Public Holidays [...]
