I visited the Singapore Art Fair with a friend in November. Interestingly, this art fair is the first modern and contemporary art fair in Asia focusing on Middle East, North Africa, South and Southeast Asia (ME.NA.SA) art, held at Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre. I do not have any artistic flares in me but I like to pretend I do. Not an artsy fartsy person but I can still learn to appreciate art right?
Recently it’s been raining almost everyday and I’m loving it. Brings down the temperature in Singapore and I can add layers to my outfit without feeling the heat. Makeup also stays longer on my face. Yet it’s a drag to step out of my house. All I want to do is roll around in bed all day. Look at the heavy downpour when I went out. Even my shoes from SPAO are wet.

The guide that doesn’t help me out. I was lost in this big big space of art pieces on display. On a side note, they collected the entry pass back from us just before we entered the exhibition hall. Lucky for me, I have already taken the photo below. Hee!
I just picked a few I liked to share and it turned out to be so much pictures. Lots of scrolling to do for this post!
Just entered the hall and giggled hard because I saw this. This whistling face is too epic.
Let’s start off with cute art pieces that are easier to appreciate.
There is ice-cream!
So happy to see fennec fox and little prince of B612.
The following two art pieces are “Fly” and “Hang” by Seungsub Lim.
Look at the head in a heart shape.
A major art work on the partition wall.
The following is “Scream” by Il Dong Kim. This is pigment on canvas. This really reminds me of the Simpons drawing in Junhyung’s house.
She is staring at you.
My personal favourite.
I like how the letters “Love” fit into this Chinese character “Love”.
Watcha looking at? LOL
I like the next piece so much that it is now my Facebook header photo.
The Last Supper before Leonardo da Vinci, 2014 by Dadi Setiyadi. The artist imagines the scene in which Da Vinci’s painting, “The Last Supper” taking place before guests arrive. This piece is acrylic on canvas.
When we exited the exhibition, we were famished and exhausted. The place is so huge with so many art pieces to admire, one afternoon is simply not enough for us. We then realised why there were 3-day passes sold. To think that we were so naive to believe we could absorb everything in one afternoon.
Oh well, according to the Singapore Art Fair official website, this event is to be held annually. That means I have something to look forward to again, in November 2015.
The night ends with ice cream at Rabbit Owl Depot.
I’m not a fan of milky ice-cream so there’s not a lot of choices for me. I got the sesame flavoured ice-cream and I love it. Sesame flavour is hard to go wrong anyway.
