IDOLISM x OIC x A Curious Teepee
Opening Launch: Thursday 5th May 2011, 7.30pm to 9.30pm
A tweed jacket, lobster claw heels, four little white stitches, a red gown…Iconography that has been etched into our psyche wittingly (and unwittingly) through the delirious world of fashion.
For this exhibition, illustrators draw inspiration from these objects of desire and their inventors, creating original artworks in the process. Using different mediums, participating artists include Mindflyer, Mr. B, Fleecircus, Sokkuan, Cherie The Mrr, Eeshaun, AnnGee, SanSan, Noreen, Fei, Miel, Annie Tan, Twisstii and Mriz Sidah just to name a few. (Yes, to name a FEW - They didn't include my name!) With varying backgrounds and styles, from political cartoons, to abstract surrealism, several take their first foray into fashion as subject matter.
With the inaugural Singapore Men’s Fashion Week just past and the upcoming Audi Fashion Festival this May, A Curious Teepee and OIC aim to convey another side of fashion, as seen through the eyes and hands of an artist.
All artworks are on display and available for sale till Sunday 22nd May at A Curious Teepee, 12pm to 9pm daily.
