    Art of 2018

    I say this every year but how is it the end of 2018?? I don’t want to leave December as I feel like I don’t want to put 2018 down just yet, but time is moving ahead!

    2018 has been my full year back in Singapore since moving back, and at first, I thought there was less happenings in art here. After a while, things have picked up, but there have been many exhibitions and events that I didn’t choose to post in detail on this blog – lack of time is always a major reason for my lack of updates! So, I thought it would be nice to look back at all of the art exhibitions and events I went to this year!

    Mondrian Makeover at Teck Whye

    It’s perennially summer in Singapore – with that, I wanted to share about these HDBs (public housing apartments in Singapore) that probably best showcase this summer-y feeling! Blocks 1 to 7 at Teck Whye Avenue have undergone a re-paint following the colour scheme of Piet Mondrian’s Composition with Yellow, Blue and Red. Upon hearing the news, I knew I had to go and check them out for myself! Read more…

    teamLab Part II | Elsewhere Around Singapore

    Here we are with the second part of this teamLab series on the blog, dedicated to their shows around Singapore! The previous post was about teamLab’s exhibitions at National Gallery Singapore, while this post features teamLab at other locations around Singapore: ArtScience Museum, The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands and National Museum of Singapore.

    I didn’t realise how popular teamLab’s works were until I returned to Singapore and noticed how much teamLab I was encountering in exhibitions or by accident on the street (see: MBS below!) Beyond the whole ‘Instagrammable’ factor, I think there’s something about their immersive ‘room art’ as I call it – should this be a new category of art? ;) – that appeals to our generation today. Another example of  popular ‘room art’ would be Yayoi Kusama’s, am I right?

    teamLab | National Gallery Singapore edition

    With the opening of the incredibly popular Mori Building Digital Art Museum teamLab Borderless in Tokyo last month, the world’s first digital art museum and teamLab’s very own museum dedicated to all of their digital installations, I thought it would be fitting to share some of teamLab’s works that I have been seeing in Singapore!

    This post features their works that I saw at National Gallery Singapore this year and the last, but there are also more of their digital art on display around town, which I’ll be sharing in another post.

    Latte Art | The Only Destructible Art

    It’s been a year and two weeks since I moved back to Singapore. Seems so crazy to me that time has passed back so quickly, and in looking back on what I’ve done over the past year, one thing kept popping up in my camera roll: lattes!

    With lattes, what’s important is not just the coffee, but also the latte art, isn’t it? It’s probably the most accessible form of art that everyone likes, yet it came to me that it’s also probably the only art that you’d want to destruct, after all the photos have been taken.

    After visiting a couple of cafes in Singapore with various latte art designs, I had plenty of photos to share of latte art, which I thought would be nice to commemorate my one year back in Singapore. :)
