Since then he’s been making moves in the street art scene, working on growing his own style via collabs and hanging out with diverse painters across the region.

Artist Ian Tee impressed the judges at this year’s Cliftons Art Prize competition with DIFFERENT SENSE, an artwork from his Destroyed Metal Paintings series.

“The series fuses the meditative practice of Zen calligraphy with the visceral expressivity of heavy metal music,” Ian explains. “The works are composed of layers of marks where I replace the traditional ink and brush with an angle grinder. Tones of chiaroscuro are made by scratching, distressing and slashing the surface – to the effect of creating a sense of space and depth. They are permanent gestures which juxtapose destructive aggression and a practice of mindfulness.”

The Cliftons Art Prize Exhibition Singapore runs until 15 December. Check it out!

Singapore-based Indonesian artist, Chelsy Xu, specializes in illustration, digital art, and traditional art.

“Fascinated by the movement of rock music and the essential unreality of surrealism, I started my artistic journey, to inspire viewers and make the world a better place,”  says the illustrator. “My work explores the relationship between undefined phenomena (fantasy) and the sensation of nature. By being open to different art forms I have a broad perspective on the arts, allowing me to mix different art forms together to create new unique styles.”

Beautiful work!

Megan Boey’s Food Girls

If you dig food and girls, you’ll do well to check out Megan Boey’s Food Girls series.

“The series is a combination of two of my favourite things: food + character creation. I want to create a diverse range of characters that people can relate to and along the process, have lots of opportunity for audience participation. I have lots of fun fleshing out these characters and typing out their personalities, their likes and dislikes. One of the best things about this series has been people guessing which food a new one’s going to be when I put up sneak-peeks, and people suggesting their own favourite foods for me to draw. I’m drawing the girls in groups of five, with one-week breaks in between. The next group is coming up in a week, so keep your eyes peeled if you’re interested!”

Megan Boey  – aka Sakyru – is a freelance illustrator, impromptu muralist and member of the Band of Doodlers. She recently graduated with a Diploma in Animation from LASALLE.
