✔ Dust the somersault trophies cabinet
✔ Fertilize the mini-golf course
✔ Water and sharpen the mother-in-law’s tongue
✔ Feed the wind up galloping goose
✔ Refill the water guns
✔ Slam the door shut. Kill the lights.

Everything checked, yeah ? Yeah ?? Good!
Now crack open the igloo-gel-flocken-swizzles and let’s get on with all sorts of year-end jollity.

Bottoms up you gorgeous lot and don’t misbehave. See you in January!

Culturepush is now off for its holibobs.

Three cheers for the crazy-good creatives of 2012!


And to paraphrase Jimi Hendrix, we will go on and be crazy next year.

Craziness is like heaven.


Sign up for Orita Sinclair’s 2012 Knowledge & Skills Assembly Sessions – It’s Free

Some might find it ironic that despite running a site that focuses largely on art and design, I don’t really have an artistic bone in my body. Hence, I found myself in a mild state of anxiety when design school Orita Sinclair invited me to participate in its first Skills Assembly session. The session was titled “How to Linocut,” led by Farizwan Fajari aka Speakcryptic, who taught a small group of us how to make our very own linocut print. The skill session was free to participants and each person only had to pay $15 for the materials (disclosure: because I was considered media the fee was waived for me, wahey).

Prior to the class, we were advised to bring a design which we would use for the linocut. Several of my group mates brought their own sketches which ranged from typography to adorable illustrations to still life. I armed myself with a Googled image of a Penrose Triangle — it’s made up of straight lines, how difficult could it be? (Also, props to my friends at Acre for unwittingly giving me something to work with). The two hours passed by in a flash and thanks to great direction from Farizwan (who is hella funny and nice), voila, the above print is now tacked above my desk. The etched out lino sheet is also kept safely away, to be re-used if I ever want to launch my retail empire of Penrose Triangle-inspired line of bags and tees.

I might detail what I learned in the class in another post, but I wanted to highlight the other Skills and Knowledge Assembly sessions that Orita Sinclair is organizing which you may be interested in. The Skills sessions are hands-on workshops and the Knowledge sessions are speaker-led. All the sessions are free and places are limited so sign up immediately to avoid disappointment.

Culturepush Readers Survey Results

It took us a while to compile the results of the survey and present them in an aesthetically pleasing manner (we know our audience, what can we say), but we finally did it and are excited to share them with you. More after the jump. MORE »


Take the Culturepush Readers’ Survey 2011

It has been over four years that Culturepush has covered the art, design and cultural scene in Singapore. Our archives go back to June 2007, but our first proper post was really in February 2007, an interview with The Observatory.

While we muse about time flying and all that, we’d like to get to know you, our readers, a little better. Hence, we’d really appreciate it if you took a little time to take a short readers’ survey. It takes 2 to 3 minutes tops.

We don’t ask for your name and all details are kept confidential, but there’s an option to leave your email address at the end if you’d like to sign up for our future mailing list. We’re also giving you the chance to win a $50 BooksActually voucher, so if you’d like to be part of the draw, please enter your email at the end of the form. We will announce the winner on 1 December 2011.

If we get a decent sample of responses, we will also publish the results of our survey in an upcoming post.

So if you’re ready, take the survey now.

And if we haven’t said it before, thanks for visiting and supporting us all this time. We truly appreciate it.
