What is convention and what is taboo? From coveted glamour pieces to provocative displays, be ready to open your senses as we showcase the art in fashion from a Swiss artist working with high heel shoes, excessively colorful abstract paintings made in Australia, but inspired from the world, a signature art fair in Singapore, and a display of ‘Living Sculptures’ from two tireless veterans of the art world.
Art is borderless. From city museums to the city streets, discover each culture’s identity as we take a stroll into Yogyakarta’s and Melbourne’s modern day art hubs. See artists freezing the moment by ‘freezing the light’ to magnify how we see art and society!
Turn your hobby into a passion. Whether you are a scientist tuned sculptor, a real estate mogul art collector, a high end art dealer, a humble mural painter, or someone who has the knack to push the boundaries of realism, learn how art is not just a way of life but can also be a way of living.
When tradition meets innovation… Explore contemporary art that takes inspiration from traditional designs and techniques. Capture the beauty of ancient Japanese painting techniques using fluorescent paints, turn vintage cars into a modern art display, or snap a timeless photo-painting with a smart phone!
Does art make a difference? An art collector becomes an icon by infusing art and design into their business, a Korean artist snap shots into the world of fantasy and fairy tales, a visionary who creates garments made out of paper, while a psychedelic clothing artist becomes a top celebrity fashion designer by incorporating a mix of art and design in her creations.
Art is versatile. It can be created in any medium. Be introduced to the pioneer of 3D art printing, learn more about corporate design thinking, be intrigued with scanography art inspired by a prison stint, and enter the dark world of criminal tattoos. The possibilities are endless to become and remain inspired.
