On 22 September 2010, I photo-documented the opening of 2nd France + Singapore New Generation Artists 2010 (FSNGA) Finalist Exhibition at Alliance Française de Singapour. The new generation French and Singapore artists, namely, Fanise Clara, Thomas Kimmerlin and Fabienne Tsaoussis from France, and Ashley Yeo, Simond Chew, Sebastian-Mary Tay Jiun Lin, Shing Ming, Ho Leng, Michael Gabriel Goh and Dina Razak from Singapore.

I’m honored to have Mae Chong of PlusSixFive Magazine to feature my SG.Ruins Series in their lifestyle magazine. SG.Ruins is an ongoing journey which i started in 2007. These spaces which are in a state of ambiguity; whether to be demolished or to be revamped are calling out to me to tell their stories before Singaporeans forget about its existence. With more coverage from different medias both online & press, i hope these beautiful ruins continue to exist in both physical and in the hearts of all Singaporeans.

SG.Ruins: 448 Clementi Ave 3 series was also featured in this months Singapore Art Gallery Guide. More to come in my next update.

Kaleidoscope- A Reminiscence of Art Deco was an art deco furniture exhibition at Alliance Française Art Gallery on 27 April 2010. All the furniture exhibited are of authentic collection and all were well maintained. I wished i could own a few pieces of the furniture on show as they are really a work of art and a timeless collection.


I love that white sofa!


Mr Michael Ong happy with the works on exhibit

Black White Blinds had a special 2 days opening on 6 & 7 April 2010 at Alliance Française Art Gallery. Didier Bayle painted watercolour paintings of Singapore’s old colonial black & white houses, it’s rare now a days to see people still using watercolour as a medium in Singapore. Thumbs up to Didier Bayle for his beautiful portrayal of Singapore.
