Singapore-based Gajah Gallery is proud to announce its participation in the 6th edition of Art Basel Hong Kong, featuring the latest works from prominent contemporary artists: Ashley Bickerton, Erizal As, Li Jin, Rudi Mantofani, Wei Ligang and Yunizar.
In Hong Kong this March, Gajah Gallery will present a varied selection of paintings and sculptures created for the collectors at Asia's premier art event.
Ashley Bickerton (USA) is among the most well-known expatriate artists, residing in Bali for almost 25 years. His work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, The Guggenheim and the Whitney Museum in New York, the Tate Gallery in London and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. His paintings form a unique commentary on the conflicting utopian-dystopian narratives that define contemporary culture.
Erizal As (ID) is a rising Indonesian artist, whose first solo exhibition in Singapore has catapulted the painter into the spotlight, drawing the attention of regional and international collectors. His 'Faceless' series seeks to capture the disparity between proclaimed and perceived identities of political or ideological authorities.
Li Jin (CN) is one of China's foremost contemporary artists, known for his lighthearted approach to the otherwise stoic field of Chinese ink painting. The characters that appear in his paintings are drawn from his daily life, and his travels through China and Bali, Indonesia.
Rudi Mantofani (ID) is one of Indonesia's most acclaimed artists, whose works have been exhibited internationally. His paintings constantly challenge the genre through daring visual techniques, and he consistently impresses audiences at art fairs and exhibitions.
Wei Ligang (CN) is one of the masters of modern Chinese calligraphy. Ligang paints ink renderings of Chinese characters that morph into seemingly animate abstractions. He is to present new works from his recent solo exhibition ' Luminous Birds'.
Yunizar (ID) enchants crowds in art fairs and exhibitions internationally, using a combination of primitive markings and elementary forms to create a universal visual language in his art, which encompasses paintings and sculptures of various sizes. He will debut new paintings in addition to a fantastic selection of sculptures, freshly produced at Yogya Art Lab.
