Entropic Dream

Ng Wu Gang utilises photography to create a visual narrative of his life and memories. But he also likes to show us things that extend beyond every day life, producing images that interpret what is within him, what is told by his dreams.

“Our dreams are this weird manifestation of our consciousness, and often don’t make any sense. Typically, we experience these dreams when we are alone. I often use Polaroids as a medium to document my dreams, as Polaroids will fade over time.”

Wu Gang is one of the 16 emerging artists from LASALLE College of the Arts’ BA(Hons) Fine Arts program showing at Art Moves III. You can view his work at the TCC Novena outlet.

“I enjoy telling stories through illustrations, and I always had a passion for drawing and a strong interest in digital art and animation,” Ru Yi Gan tells Culturepush. When studying at Nanyang Polytechnic, she decided to attend the Digital Media Design course, specializing in Animation.

“Since then, I’ve worked on numerous book illustrations for publishing companies and I’ve been actively involved in video production projects.”

Ru Yi developed a fascination with book illustrations and plans to publish an illustrated storybook in the future.

We spotted Joses Phang‘s work at the TCC outlet on Circular Road. Joses is one of the 16 emerging artists from LASALLE College of the Arts’ BA(Hons) Fine Arts program showing works at Art Moves III, a year-long exhibition across various TCC cafés.

Joses tells Culturepush his works mostly talk about people and society. “I have always been very drawn to this idea of loneliness and isolation in an urban society, especially since I took up street photography as a hobby, and started capturing these moments of isolation in bustling areas of the city. As someone who enjoys doing things alone, my photographs and drawings mirror my own state of mind wandering the city, investigating these feelings of loneliness in crowds, yet feeling completely comfortable being alone at the same time. Influenced by the absurd, each work of mine is like a journey exploring these positions of isolation, torn between being an individual and being a part of a collective, and finding no real resolution to it.”

Banner Shuffle! Yellow Mushmellow

“The illustration draws from a series of comics I created based on a “falter-ego” who responds to tough situations by stress-binging on food instead of actually solving her problems. I guess we can all relate to crunch time like that. :-)” – Yellow Mushmellow.

Crimson Star: A Singaporean Superhero

Crimson Star  is a platform for Singaporean artists and they just hit Kickstarter with a comic about a Singaporean Superhero.

“The character, an everyman bestowed with powers he does not entirely want, isn’t only faced with a new bad guy every few months or so, but also has to combat the daily struggles that most Singaporeans faced during the cusp of the decade between the late ’80s and early ’90s.

With 65 issues planned, and the first 3 issues being currently illustrated, by a talented team of local artists, this Kickstarter campaign is an opportunity for comic book collectors to get their hands on an ashcan containing 10 pages of the first issue featuring the first appearances of future Crimson Star Fandi, his super-powered acquaintances Starlight and Starling, and their tech-obsessed villain, Tech-0-Mech.”
