The most groundbreaking contemporary art comes from the East. This is a footage of the discussion during the conference at Saatchi Gallery in London.

Trans-cool Tokyo @ SAM

Trans-Cool Tokyo
is a traveling exhibition of contemporary Japanese art from the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo Collection, currently showing at Singapore Art Museum at 8Q. The show, running until February 13th showcases multiple works of Japanese Pop Art, ranging from Yayoi Kusama and Yoshitomo Nara to artists such as Kohei Nawa and Yasumasa Morimura. Since the second half of 1990s, Japanese artists have established their own creative grounds, forming unique identities that have been adopted and celebrate throughout the international pop culture movement. The selected pieces, such as Morimura's
Criticism and the Lover A, B, C
embody humor and irony, responding to both mass culture as well as rejecting the perception of art as a privileged subject for the affluent crowd.

Exhibiting at Singapore Art Museum

Welcome to Singapore

Happy New Year, I must say I am off to an amazing start for 2011. I just returned from Bali a couple of days ago to Jakarta and quickly hopped on another flight to Indonesia's neighboring country, Singapore. I arrived yesterday and quite frankly, I am loving it. It feels good to be back roaming around the streets and checking out the new developments since I last set foot in 2007. The country never fails to impress me with its appreciation of culture and push for urban infrastructure. Its quite unfortunate that the weather is unpredictable, but hey, it is monsoon season after all. So for January 5th until January 12th, I will be reporting on my daily activities in Singapore, followed by an adventure in Hong Kong from January 12th to January 19th.
