EXCLUSIVE - Orange Gallery Singapore is proud to present the celebrated Jeff Koons balloon dog sculpture.
The Balloon Dog plate is part of the artist's "Celebration" series - an array of objects whose primary focus draws on festive and celebratory images such as party hats, Easter eggs and balloon animals. An iconic figure in contemporary art, Jeff Koons' balloon dog, placed on a silver platter, cements the work as a epochal reference to 21st Century fine art. This is an exquisite work of art that has gone up in price almost every single year since it was first offered.

 
 
These beautiful and increasingly difficult to obtain works are currently fetching auction prices of between US$18,000 to US$25K. We have secured three pieces, Yellow, Magenta, and Orange, which will be available for a short time at US$15,500 for Orange and Magenta, and US$16,000 for Yellow. Each piece comes with the original certificate of authenticity and with original packing. Prices stated are subject to change. For purchase outside SIngapore the stated prices do not include shipping and insurance.

ART FOR THE MASSES - The Affordable Pop Art Exhibition, will showcase a very exciting group of pop art and pop art off-shoot artists that create urban and so-called low-brow art. For the last decade or so, under the radar, there have been several very interesting things happening globally in the arts. One is the proliferation of artists who create their work mainly on the streets, or who have become incredibly well known by a large audience but are virtually unknown in the established art world. The low-brow and street art movements are built on many of the tenets of pop art and some of the most exciting art today is created by these artists.
 
Orange Gallery Singapore and Iskander Walen proudly present some of the best artists working in these movements today, as well as local artist who are rapidly carving out their own fame among the pop art audience.

Prints by BUNKO! Orange Gallery Singapore is now carrying an exclusive range of prints by BUNKO. The current range can be viewed and ordered here: BUNKO PRINTS.

The prints by BUNKO cover a very wide range of themes and topics, but there is a consistency that seems to be present in all the works, it's the casual irrevence for any subject that is tackled. Whether it is a cultural icon, or a corporate mascot, BUNKO's take is (sometimes brutally) funny, mocking, or downright offensive. It is never boring and that makes BUNKO prints sought-after (and cheap!).

What if art was not out in the open, for everyone to see? Does it invite greater curiosity and closer scrutiny when we have to fill in ourselves the parts that are hidden from view. Will our own secrets push into our contemplation of that we cannot see? Dutch artist Iskander Walen created the art works in this exhibition over a period of over twenty years. The first boxed up work he made was started in 1995, and took nearly 5 years to complete. That first work, "Goodbye", is a series of snapshots of the artist's life over a period of roughly ten years, in which both his maternal grandparents died, and he left home for good to live in Singapore.
 
The work is a single wooden wine crate filled with small items piled on top of each other, obscuring all but the top layer, items relating to significant incidents, events and people from the artist's past. Other works include "And Then There Were Four", a box with a cast of the artist's wife's torso taken when she was 8 months pregnant with their second son. "I Love You For Your Mind", a heart cast from a woman's buttocks, shaped like a heart. In the artist's own words, "I don't know why I am so fascinated with boxes. I think it is the air of mystery. It is a thrill to open a cupboard and find boxes inside. What is inside them? Boxes are where we keep our memories, our secrets, and past events which we do not wish to be reminded of. We all have our boxes at home, hidden away from view in cupboard and storage spaces, and hidden in those boxes are our past lives. I think I put some works in boxes because that way it feels like I will keep it forever, that it will never be lost."

INSTANT FAME is the first edition of what we hope will be an annual event. The best Pop Artist come together in a one-of-a-kind Pop event group show, showing the tpye of works that made them loved by collectors locally and abroad. Featuring Billy Ma, Stefanie Hauger, Leo Liu Xuanqi, Andre Tan, Justin Lee, TR853-1 (aka TraseOne), and Iskander Walen, INSTANT FAME is a cool introduction to the most prolific Pop Art practitioners in Singapore.
Their work reflects on modern life and pop culture, delving into our ever-increasing obsessions with celebrity, money, branded goods, popular culture, and consumerism gone wild.
 
Andre Tan's slick cuteness, Hauger's social commentary, Ma's ad-like poster designs, Leo Liu and Iskander Walen's tongue in cheek playfulness, TR853-1's honest self-reflection, and Justin Lee's double happiness are already well-known and sough after by art collectors far and wide. This is an unique opportunity to see this group of artists in one place at the same time. Don't miss it! Jointly organized with Utterly Art Gallery.

ARTIS SINGAPURA is series of paintings of Singaporean artists who work in various disciplines by Dutch artist Iskander Walen.
The exhibition is the result of Walen's search for a specific expression or visual aspect that identifies the artist from the non-artist. The nearly three-year journey to discover a commonality in the artists other than their inner drive to create resulted in a series of wildly diverse and stunning portraits that each reveal some of the subject's inner life, but not what art form they practice, nor what drives them in their artistic quest.
 

"Each of the artists I painted has crossed my path over my twenty years living and working in SIngapore, some on multiple occassions. I chose the artists that made an impression and lead to a reflection my own development as an artist. At times the connection was more influential and had a greater impact on my career choices. I think this is why I choose the artists as subjects. I am searching for something. I think each of these artists is. Sometimes I think they find something, and for a while there is a sense of accomplishment, but then the quest begins again. This is how I experience it, anyway. I think I hoped to find something in their faces of this searching. I leave it to the viewer to decide whether I did."

The Iskander Walen retrospective is a summary overview of Dutch artist Iskander Walen's career as a painter and sculptor, starting with his first liquid oil paintings solo show in 1993 right up to his current series American Icons.
Over the span of his career, Walen has worked in every medium, from traditional materials such as paint and clay, to video, photography, synthetics and metals, and more recently performance art. He began his studies in traditional techniques, creating portraits, still life and landscapes in pencil and watercolor.
 
He mastered the fundamentals in the early 1990's, and his focus shifted. He began obsessively creating abstracts, liquefying the paint and letting the material dictate each next step in his development. During this time, Walen used mostly liquid oil paints, and only on wood and paper. This was followed by a brief period of experimenting with mixed media, combining photographs and oil paint. In what he refers to as the "wilderness years", Walen sidetracked into photography, film and video. He explored comics, stand up comedy performance, and television, and began to apply all of his experiences when he returned to fine art.

Iskander Walen: "Art is a strange human expression. For me, it has always been an attempt to exorcise feelings of conflict and confusion, or to leave the present, to get away from reality and just roam the isolated recesses of my consciousness where only the work matters and nothing else. When I make art, purpose comes into focus. My work seems to give my existence meaning. Creating has always been a compulsion for me. It isn't just a need to communicate with others. If I ended up stranded on a deserted island, after taking care of my basic needs, I would likely still create art, regardless of whether anyone else would ever see it. I think I create mostly for myself, to save me from depression and suicide. That sounds very dark, but as a consequence I am quite happy. I just think I wouldn't see any point to my life if I didn't create. That is what I think sets artists apart from other people, who I am sure have their own compulsions, such as money, prestige, sex, etc.. My motivation is creating."

AGE 3 AND ABOVE

THIS EXHIBITION HAS ENDED.

     
AGE 3 AND ABOVE (THE GUN SHOW) is a new exhibition in progress by Dutch artist Iskander Walen. An exploration into the existence of toy guns. Walen's obsession with mankind's obvious but largely ignored contradictions continues with AGE 3 AND ABOVE. The title of the exhibition is taken from the advisory of toy gun packaging advising the buyer that the toy machine gun or hand gun they are purchasing is not suitable for children under 3 years of age.
 
Iskander Walen: "This is a difficult subject and the search for the right visuals to convey my ideas has been and continues to be very exciting. Guns are visually as powerful as they are in their function. Their power and beauty are a genuine appeal of guns, but ultimately they are a mistake. However, it is a mistake that we seem to be unwilling to correct.
When we see a photograph of a child hold a toy gun, there is some eerie about it. When they run around and play it isn't as disturbing. When we freeze the visual, which creates the silence and pause we need to reflect on anything, we can see clearly that a child holding a toy gun is a reflection of something that we fear in our adult peers. An adult holding a gun is disturbing and frightening, yet there are as many if not more toy guns which we buy for our children to play Kill Your Friends. I think that is very bizarre. Why do toy guns exist, why we stop questioning the existence of real guns as we grow up, why do we pass on the choice of violence as an acceptable form of conflict resolution generation after generation. Are these even the right questions to ask."

AGE 3 AND ABOVE (THE GUN SHOW) opens on January 12th, at 6.30pm, and will feature 2- and 3-dimensional works as well as a talk and a performance by the artist.. This will be an exhibition in progress that will continue to develop over three months and will culminate in a closing night on April 13.

CAN! - an exhibition of art works and performances by Iskander Walen.

CAN! is about our addiction to smart phones and how we seem to increasingly prefer looking at our phones rather than interact directly with the world and people around us. The reality we experience on the phone requires no effort or investment on our part. We can select on our phone items that will give us any emotion experience we want, for the exact duration we want, when we want it, wherever we are and whoever we are actually with. We can have this with none of the effort it would take to experience that emotion in real life.
Like a meal from a can, the smart phone digital reality is quick, easy and almost effortless. Like canned processed food the phone allows us to consume a digital life that doesn't require shopping for groceries, preparing and cooking each individual item, and without a pile of dishes afterwards. .

The cans in Iskander Walen’s CAN! contain the things we most eagerly seek after on our smart phones, from baby pictures to one-click "friendships" on Facebook, celebrity gossip to instant nostalgia, ready-made spirituality, and instant fame. It’s life from a can.

On the opening night itself (and over the course of the four-month exhibition period), the  artist will also present several performances.

As an experiment that allows the audience to experience the artist's process of creating art, Iskander Walen's exhibition will open while not all the works have been created. At the start of the exhibition a good part of the art works will be presented, together with several performances, on the opening night itself. The process of creation will then continue throughout the following four-month exhibition period, actually taking place in the exhibition space itself. Visitors will be able to see the artist's exhibition developing and coming to completion.

This experimental exhibition format allows visitors to discover how a series of works can evolve over their creation period.

To witness the process or creation, the public is invited to visit on the opening night or early on in the exhibition, when part of the works and performances are presented, then at any time during the exhibition period to see how the artist further develops his ideas into physical works and performances, and then again at the end, when the exhibition is completed. The completion of the exhibition will be celebrated with a closing night. This event will present all the finalized works as well as the artist's final performances for this show.

CAN! was presented at Goodman Arts Center, 90 Goodman Road, Studio 9, Block O
