Art Stage Singapore 2016 started off strong for our local talents Jane Lee and Wyn-Lyn Tan, both of whom were highlighted as artists to look out for when The Peak spoke to movers and shakers of the art scene here recently. Lee sold an acrylic on fiberglass painting titled Portrait #11 for US$33,000 (S$47,500), while Tan, whose works are displayed by Fost Gallery, sold an acrylic on plywood artwork for $17,000.

As we head into the last two days of the premier contemporary art fair, here are three striking pieces of art that caught our eye.


The Glass Calendar by Hubert Le Gall for champagne house Ruinart. The whimsical, dreamy installation features 12 pieces of glass masterfully crafted to mimic the growth of Ruinart’s vineyards over a year.
“In Supermarket Veritas” by Indonesian artist couple indieguerillas, who have just  been nominated for the Prudential Eye Awards 2016. The bold use of colours and thought-provoking imagery here makes this a piece worth heading over to Mizuma Gallery to check out.

“Made in China” by mixed media artist Joe Black. It’s hard to avoid the lifelike gaze of the young Chinese soldier, and a closer examination of the artwork reveals over 5,000 multi-coloured toy soldiers glued to to a vertical surface to achieve the pointillistic effect. The artwork is exhibited under Opera Gallery at Art Stage Singapore.
Art Stage Singapore is open to the public till Sunday at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre.
