State of Art: 5 exhibitions to see in Singapore this April 2018

Brightness by Florian Nguyen

The transition from pen and paper into pixels and screens was a defining change of the 21st century. French-Vietnamese artist Florian Nguyen channels this juxtaposition in his latest solo exhibition, Brightness. Some of the works in the exhibit took him months to create, as his technique is an intricate one involving the capture of light on paper.

Realm of Imagination by Jean-Pierre Roc-Roussey

Our imagination is what drives us to create. For Jean-Pierre Roc-Roussey, his fantastical dreamscapes inspired him to translate them into real-world paintings. They combine mythologies from the East and West and tell tales of legendary wars, epic romances and heroic odysseys.

When he’s not busy keeping up with the keynotes, he’s probably stuffing his face with the best Melbournian donuts (at Shortstop, BTW) or watching his favourite esports team, the Los Angeles Valiant, pummel their opponents into oblivion.
