The Rojak Rendezvous

(from the press release)

Singaporean urban art collective RSCLS presents the Rojak Rendezvous- a 4 day festival celebrating French and Singaporean culture through the medium of urban art. The festival will see a ménage a trois of a live art jam, master class workshop and artist talk.

Graffiti and street art is a global art phenomenon. Its presence cannot be denied in any city in the world, from Sao Paolo to Surabaya. While the mediums and methodologies employed might be similar, each artist works in the context of their own urban landscape, bound by the geo political nature and social make up of their cities. This creates a diverse landscape of street art practices and experiences.

In an effort to encourage understanding of the art form, French artists Kongo and KA’a and Singaporean artists Antz, Clogtwo, Zero, SKL0 will share their unique practices – artistic practices that have been shaped by the unique urban landscapes of the cities that each artist hails from. From the streets of Narvaland and Paris to the back alleys of Jalan Besar and Arab Street, audiences will be taken on a journey to explore and understand the unique paradox of urban arts through the nozzles of these artists.
