finally, we have lift off! yes, we've woken up to all our dreaming, scheming, reviewing, cajoling, begging and more ings i could think of in my vocabulary.
'awakening: journey to abstraction' went up at the spacious the art loft@volvo showroom of singapore. we will be their swan song/show before they tear down to rebuilt the car showroom. you can say that we will bring the house down -…Continue
my wife is into genealogy, tracing her roots all the way back to the basque region of spain. what has that got to do with this blog on francis bacon? well i have been fascinated by a few artists like basquiat, heirst, klee etc in this happy passion of mine called painting. so in reading up some of their bios, i would encounter bar none, a section on who their favorite (or one that influenced them) in their art. it got me thinking, like the chart my wife does with her learning exercise,…Continue
an interesting video from tate. curator ann gallagher does a walkthrough with damien hirst himself on the exhibition rooms. i have often thought that he is a good study for artist who wants to punch through the crowd and clutter. does he make great art? there are some gems (imho) but i'm fascinated more by the persona.
i'm about to tick one item of my to do list for this year. to sell my works commercially. yay! so far i've 'sold' my works by donating pieces for our annual charity events. and most often, given out to friends who i think will accept (or is the word tolerate? ;) my hobby. but i'm growing confident (thanks in part to LMM) that this, this passion of mine, can be something that i would love do more in the future. maybe pay the bills too. anyways... back to group show story.
if you haven't seen or heard this stunning movie called home, pls try and catch it. i was so moved by the marvelous cinematography with its sweeping angles while not detracting from the objective of the film. the message is strong, optimistic and calls us to action. i find that it is not too preachy nor alarmist but it was successful in creating the urgency for us to collectively move. makes me think how i can help heal gaia - our home - in my own…Continue
... just sharing found fun!
I don't know how I missed this. I stumbled upon JR's acceptance of his TED Prize and his WISH.
Delightful to watch. I like his work on the Favela the most...powerful! Enjoy!
Ok. We have heard of Origami but Furoshiki .... ?
I encountered this wrapping technique when I was struggling what to give my officemates. I grabbed two bottles of mini's (small wine bottles) and wrapped them using this technique. It turned out good... I got more compliments on the wrapper/ing than the gift itself!
Here's to inspirations…Continue
Thought I'd share this with you guys. Found it fascinating, beautifully shot documentary on an ancient craft called Karakuri. Just inspiring... 3:34
If you are not one of the 11M people who have seen this in youtube, it's your lucky day. stumbled upon it again after a long time. do take some time to see this engaging video from Philip Scot Johnson (eggman913) ! I haven't tried the 'name the painting where the face came from' challenge. scared~ dare to try? …
a college buddy back home has a few shops and has been egging me to send over some pieces. boy, that would require good $$$ to ship 'em. and i'm holding on to these abstract pieces until the final assessment (about May). then, off to pastures those puppies - adopted or auctioned…Continue
< Just a couple of weeks ago, I finally got around to visit one of our offices in the region. It's this tiny but progressive island called Taiwan, where Taipei is the capital city. It has this…Continue
As I continue to enjoy my part-time art classes, the steady decline of my usual staple of marketing, business or popular non-fiction books is noticeable. Our little library has somehow stopped getting filled up and the wife has noticed. But in the corner of my teeny tiny…Continue
Note: I've loaded more pix. It was 2am when I did the initial blog/upload, and a bit of work to recompress/resize but hopefully you guys like it. Drop me a note if you want specifics on anything. I made some…
Continuing on a self-imposed promise to blog consistently, I thought I might pick up on what I began in the "Who are you?" newbies. Lifted most, trimmed some & expanded on lots....This is me: Darwin Sy Antipolo.
I'm a Filipino, but have been based in sunnier Singapore(SG) for a good few years now. An industrial Engineer by training but got into sales/marketing roles of technology/internet services and solution. The boring business blahs are in my Linkedin…Continue
I placed some samples of ATCs I've managed to do over a weekend in my album. Here are some more.
It was really intended as a Christmas/ Holiday present for most of my colleagues at work.
These babies went out today... Individually packed and I sneaked in to their individual…Continue
For two weekends now, the Singapore Art Museum@8Q showed several films from Japan. Two of the must watch for me were: "Travelling with Yoshitomo Nara" and "Yayoi Kusama: I love me". They represent two of the finest contemporary/ avant garde artists (incidentally from Japan).
Yoshitomo Nara > Google images…Continue
