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 am very happy to witness Michael Gabriel who was my student at Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts crowned Winner for FSNGA2010. Congrats Michael!

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.

“mummy, don’t drool over the paintings~”

On 4th March 2010, Alliance Française de Singapour engaged me again to cover the opening night of Eternal Maya by Tikal Dumas. Tikal’s artworks uses a mixture of digital & traditional medium to express his representation of Maya culture through today’s perception. This mysterious aspect of Maya culture is what Tikal perceived to be his source of life in art. The opening was officiated by Mr. Olivier Caron, Ambassador of France to Singapore.


Oh no! i’m spotted 😛


I love this pic! “True Art”

I just love to cover art events, mainly because I’m an artist by heart. 😉 Jack Ying Tan was the winner of France + Singapore New Generation Artists 2009 (FSNGA09). Being the winner of FSNGA09, Jack held her solo exhibition, Shifting (Re)iteration at Alliance Française de Singapour on 13 January 2010. This event was also in conjunction with the celebration of Societe General Private Banking Sponsorship of the Alliance Française Art Gallery.
