1. Cheng Ran (China) — Before Falling Asleep, Film Still No.1, 2013, C-Print, 150 x 120 cm, Edition 2 of 6 + 1 AP.
Price: upon request
Working with photography and video installation, Rijksakademie scholarship holder Cheng Ran creates multi-channel installations with a cinematic effect. For his work, he relies on spontaneity rather than pre-organised schedules and scripts. His poetic oeuvre reflects interior worlds through rich and varied visual languages.
2. Eri Imamura (Japan) — Miracle: with prayer for Japan, 2014, antique Japanese Kimono textiles, 37 x 53 x 10 cm, Unique Work.
Price: upon request
The Tokyo-born, Bankok-based artist Eri Imamura is very interested in the combination of her Japanese cultural concept and Native American cultural technique. By combining the two, she would like to offer opportunities for cross-cultural conversations for a deeper understanding and peace between different cultures around the world.
3. Farhad Moshiri (Iran) — Curl, 2012, digital print, 70 x 50 cm, Edition of 300.
Farhad Moshiri is one of Iran’s most internationally visible artists, because of his deft, humorous and visually seductive examinations of popular culture and the modern world. He is well known for his ironic interpretations of hybrids between traditional Iranian forms and those of the consumerist and globalised popular culture widespread in his country.
4. Fatema Al Mazrouie (Abu Dhabi) — The Man Who Built the Nation Series, mixed media on canvas, 107 x 147cm, Unique Work.
Fatema Al Mazrouie is an emerging, talented UAE artist. Her artworks represent an integrated, dimensional world in which several components are aligned: the artist combines textile material used in the Emirates during the 1940s and 1950s with traditional elements and models from the UAE cultural milieu that is no longer used to contribute to the creation of an interactive artwork.
5. Fung Wing Yan (HK, China) — November Tale 11011, 2016, ink on rice paper, 41 x 36 2 cm.
Fung’s ink paintings are a poetic exploration of life, love and loss. Imagining the immensity of the universe and nature within the metaphorical space of a bowl, and other objects from daily life, she expresses her philosophy about existence and inner emotions.
6. GAMA (Mongolia) — Zaubergarten (Enchanted Garden), 2015, oil and acrylic on canvas, 160 x 140cm, Unique Work.
Gama was born in Mongolia and grew up in the nomadic tradition in which shamanism still plays an important role. As an outsider, he was exposed to the extraordinary richness of contemporary German art, which ranges from the conceptual rigour of Gerhard Richter to the expressionist style of Georg Baselitz, eventually the matter-of-fact depiction of recognisable events and objects and wild flights of the imagination.
7. Gonkar Gyatso (UK)— Untitled, 2012, Mixed media collage and pencil on resin cast sculpture, 40.6x 45.7x 30.5cm, Unique Work.
Price: upon request
Gonkar Gyatso’s work comes out of a fascination with material and pop culture along with a desire to bring equal attention to the mundane as well as the extraordinary, the imminent and the superfluous. These contradictions are often found in the same piece. His work can be playful, uncanny and even ironic, and at the same time comes out of concerns that are shaping our times.
8. Gromyko Semper (Philippines) — The Alterpiece of the Fernal Noosphere, 2014, ink, and acrylic on canvas, 60x 48cm, Unique Work.
Semper’s woodblock style has some affinities with Albrecht Durer’s, but is quite unique, drawing heavily on both the Roman Catholic and supernatural folk traditions of the Philippines, quantum mechanics, alchemy, world mythology, classical art, occult, art nouveau, and the gamut of erotic drawing from Japanese Ukiyo-E to Aubrey Beardsley.
9. Haffendi Anuar (Malaysia) — Migratory Objects 2, 2016, Emulsion paint and wood,
73 x 20 x 10cm, Unique Work.
Haffendi’s practice is multi-dimensional. Mining art history, digital technology, nature and local contexts, he recycles found images, objects and artistic styles from digital and local sources. He lives and works in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and is represented by Richard Koh Fine Art.
10. Hengki Koentjoro (Jakarta) — Sitting Rothko, Photographed in Serang – Banten, 120 x 120cm, Edition of 3.
Delving into what he believes to be his true purpose in life’s journey of expression, Hengki Koentjoro indulges himself in the art of black and white photography on the side. He explores along the borderlines of light and shadow, yin and yang, celebrates complexity in the minimalist, and dives into the spiritual in the physical.
11. Hodeuk Kim (South Korea) —Waterfall, 2011, Korean ink on cotton cloth, 223 x 165cm, Unique Work.
Price: upon Request
Hodeuk Kim has had numerous solo exhibitions throughout Korea, including at the Kim Chong Yung Museum, Seoul (2014), Bongsan Cultural Center, Daegu (2010) and Cyan Museum of Art, Yeoncheon (2009). His works are in public collections such as the National Museum of Contemporary Art, Gwacheon, Seoul Museum of Art, Seoul, and Daegu Art Museum, Daegu.
12. Imrana Tanveer (Karachi) — Blue of the War Sky, paper and thread, 127x 241.3 cm, Unique Work.
Imrana Tanveer’s work incorporates weaving and textiles, and appropriates iconic images from both Western and Pakistani art and culture to address social and political issues, both locally in Pakistan and globally.
13. Izziyana Suhaimi (Singapore) — The Looms in our Bones 9, 2013, embroidery and pencil on paper, 57 x 75 cm, Unique Work.
Izziyana Suhaimi’s work explores the evidence of the hand and of time. Working primarily with embroidery, she is attracted to the medium’s simplicity and its roots in history, both personally and globally. Each stitch is like an echo of the last and a connection to a much larger tradition.
14. Jange Rae (Bandung) — Make Love Not War, 2013, mixed media on canvas, 120 x 100 cm, Unique Work.
As an autodidact Rae experiments with different techniques, exploring diverse subject matters and has participated in multiple exhibitions as a way to upgrade his level of competency as an artist. He is influenced by factors such as the country’s condition, economy, religion, amongst others. The inner angst about how he feels about all these issues, and the rebellion towards social and political norms and culture have become a driving force in his practice.
15. island6 (China)— Influential Standard Bodies, 2017, RGB LED display, acrylic painting on Plexiglas, paper collage, teakwood frame, 52 x 52 x 5.5cm, Unique Work.
island6 (Liu Dao) is a Shanghai-based collective of tech-geeks and creative talents whose driving force is collaboration. Since its inception in 2006, this dynamic international group has produced multimedia art that muses on the relationship between the delicate qualities of traditional art and the technical complexities of the contemporary.
