In my post a couple of weeks ago about Art Stage Singapore, the annual Asia-focused exhibition held here, I promised to post some more photos.
I really, really enjoyed walking around the space and taking in all the varied works. These iPhone snapshots are meant to show a sampling of what was on display.
For a bit of context, here’s a WSJ story (not by me) providing an overview of this year’s exhibition. And here’s one from last year.
There’s also a story about Art Stage Singapore from ArtNews and a post with a bunch of images Hanoi Grapevine.
I was most struck by the works shown here at the top. They were highly realistic, incredibly detailed, and oddly futuristic.
I didn’t note the artist’s name at the time, but learned later — thanks to Instagram user Harsha — that they were done by Chinese artist Yang Yongliang.
Of course, I should have known — I tweeted about and linked to some of his artwork in this link round-up in early 2013.
I loved seeing the pieces in person. Here’s a video with more about him.
The rest of the photos show other artwork that caught my eye.
