As a quote from a clergyman from America named Henry Ward Beecher, there will always be a part of yourself, if not all, in everything that you create.

As quoted from the famous Spanish artist, Pablo Picasso. Anything could stimulate an artist’s mind. And by anything, it means absolutely anything. From living to non-living things, from something humble as an ant or the towering skyscrapers. You name it. A simple thought could turn into stunning masterpieces.
This quote by Thomas Merton can not be any truer. For artists, before they could find meaning in their artwork, they first lose themselves in the process, they lose grounds of the reality to create a world of their own where they discover more about themselves.
And for observers, this is also true. How many times have you looked at an artwork and find yourself confused? And if you stare long enough, you begin to interpret its meaning that is uniquely your own.
From the French artist, Edgar Degas comes the famous quote “Art is not what you see but what you make others see.”
People perceive art in many different ways but regardless of what it means for one person, the fact that someone has opened his/her eyes and saw something in it has art achieved its purpose.
Are you an art enthusiast? Do you want to go beyond the habit of just observing and appreciating art? Do you want to buy art all for yourself? So that you can set it in your house and marvel at it for hours? Do you want to purchase art that is not only valuable but also affordable? On the other hand, are you someone who creates art and would like to exhibit it to people who really care? Are you an up-and-coming painter or sculptor or visual artist who would like to kick off his/her career through one of the biggest and most anticipated festivals in Singapore? Let us introduce you the Affordable Art Fair Singapore, with its Spring Edition 2017 running from April 7 to April 9 at F1 Pit Building in 1 Republic Boulevard, Singapore – 038975.
Art in Singapore and other parts of the world is facing an immediate danger. Danger, not in terms of creativity, quantity, or quality, but of sales. Sales of art exhibits that are showcased in different art festivals that run in the Lion City. The art fraternity is accusing recession and authenticity for this dramatic drop in sales. However, some organizations back home believe that the art fair model is to be blamed. For what it’s worth, we think the idea of observing and understanding art has not really transcended into the idea of owning them, which is what is endangering the art world.
You enter the city they call the Red Dot and you don’t see the artist turning up inside you? Chances are you are in a wrong country. Art in Singapore is almost ubiquitous, which is constantly transcending into international levels. Art has been an important element of Singapore since it was born into the third world in the 60s. For a tourist to land in Singapore and not appreciate the sculptures, the paintings, the artwork, and the visual arts is like going to the Australian coast and not marvelling at the corals. Art is everywhere in Singapore, and slowly the country is trying to become the cynosure of the world when it comes contemporary art. No wonder it has at least ten cultural events going on a daily basis in different parts of the country. So, what has led Singapore to become the art hub of the world?
Walking along the Hindoo Road in the Tekka region of Singapore, it is with rather an impulsive stimulus that you will look at it. This one (of many) literally larger-than-life mural of a person whom you know you have seen before. At first sight, you would think it’s related to Thailand or Indonesia. But, as you walk closer to the mural and stand in front of it, it will dawn on you.
The spring blossoms are ready to intoxicate your soul. It’s time to adventure into the beautiful world of art sculptures at Singapore Botanic Gardens, which is easily among the most exotic places on this planet.
