The recently concluded Art Stage Singapore Exhibition 2011 hosted several top art galleries from around the world. Some of the best in Asian contemporary art were showcased and works by upcoming artist were also featured.
The exhibition was held from 12- 16 January 2011 at Marina Bay Sands. With art work filling up 3 exhibition halls, there were thousands of art pieces on displayed. Majority of the galleries were from the Asia Pacific region and the rest from international galleries. Upon entry, I was pleasantly surprised to see a huge KAWS companion figure fronting the reception. However, that’s the only piece by KAWS on displayed. The whole exhibition was an eye feast for art lovers and I spend half a day just to browse through all the exhibits. Below are some art pieces that caught my attention.
Given the huge success, I do hope this exhibition can be made into an annual event in Singapore. With a balance of established and young galleries, local and regional artists have the opportunities to showcase their work to a wider audience. In turns, it also benefits art lovers and collectors from around the world.

On the last Saturday of July, the old district of Borgo Vico hosted an art and music festival. There was also a graffiti contest, and the winner will exhibit his work at the Como Business Center for Expo 2015. I used my Zorki 4 loaded with an Ilford FP4+ film to document the event. I focused on the young artists who, amid the swirl of activity, had to concentrate on their large-scale pieces.
