BMW Young Asian Artists Series II: SG edition (David Chan/Donna Ong/:Phunk Studio)
Type Zero Pte Ltd, Singapore, 2009, 36 pp.
BMW Asia’s involvement with STPI was a natural culmination of efforts and shared vision to nurture the next generation of artists who have the potential to add vibrancy to the arts scene here. At STPI, each artist spent two weeks working alongside STPI’s workshop team exploring new ideas and print techniques to create fresh, innovative and cutting-edge works for this exhibition.
BMW YAAS II features Singaporean artists David Chan, Donna Ong, and :phunk studio. The artists were invited to spend two weeks at STPI to search new ideas and print techniques in order to create daring, inventive, and cutting edge works. They were challenged to discover an unfamiliar technique using the resources at STPI. Working closely with STPI’s workshop team, each artist was given the complete artistic freedom to study a specific print medium in order to increase their own personal creative boundaries and produce works unable to have been completed alone.
