Contrasts Gallery @ Art Stage

Galleries attending the inaugural Art Stage Singapore are starting to unveil the artists they will present. The Shanghai-based Contrasts Gallery will have mainly Chinese artists. My two favorites are Li Tianbing, who likes to recollect his childhood experiences as an only child seeking imaginary playmates by mixing fantasy and memory themes in his paintings; and the ‘ash’ paintings of Zhang Huan who uses incense ash in his works to reflect on the social history of China. Contrasts will also have several ink brush artists with Wang Tiande , Wang Dongling and Lan Zhenghui.
