From architectural sculptures that reflect the marginalised in Singaporean society to ephemeral illustrations inspired by historical escapades, we highlight the works of five artists you should have on your radar at this year’s edition of the Singapore Art Week.
1. Faris Nakamura
WHO IS HE Growing up, Faris Nakamura had to share a room with his brothers, and till today, he’s never had his own living space. “I feel both attached and detached to the space at the same time, and I found this dynamics intriguing,” the Lasalle College of the Arts graduate shares. This desire for his own space led the artist to explore, through sculptures, installations and site-specific works, the way people navigate and orientate themselves within spaces.
