FEATURED ARTIST: ZONCY - MALAYSIA
Journalist, writer, activist and visual artist Zoncy (b.1987) explores gender issues and social bias in her work. Whether through her performance pieces or her photography, the artist initiates discussion on ethnic tensions and religious differences that threaten the delicate balance of today’s Myanmar. With her series Unknown Women 3: Queens of Mother Nature, Zoncy celebrates the diversity of the region’s many ethnic and religious groups, obscuring the specifics of their features with flowers; a metaphor for the beauty and fragility of women in Myanmar’s male-dominated society. For this socially-conscious artist, her goal is to be an agent of change.
Zoncy has exhibited her work in Myanmar, Austria, Singapore, France and Thailand.
FEATURED ARTIST: CHO YEA JAE - SOUTH KOREA
Cho Yea Jae’s (b.1971) work is an exercise in deep self-reflection and continuous observation. An artist of many interests including politics and the environment, Cho articulates an awareness of her subject matter with an emotional eloquence. Working in oil, acrylic or mixed media on canvas, her work invites myriad interpretations; different meanings and perceptions based on the viewer’s own emotional and intellectual reaction to the work.
Cho seeks to continually improve her craft by developing various techniques to get to the perfect result.
Cho has exhibited her work at various art fairs across Asia.
FEATURED ARTIST: LIN XUEMING - CHINA
Abstract painter, Lin Xueming (b.1954) brings together two worlds by blending his traditional artistic heritage with western techniques, a dialogue that is conducted through the use of Chinese ink and rice paper with Western acrylic paint. With a background in architecture and interior design, the artist used his keen understanding of materials and space to create “Falling Mountains”, a series of works that express the instability of the world depicted in broad, sweeping brushstrokes that capture movement, firmness and flexibility.
Lin studied at the Central Academy of Arts and Crafts, Beijing and taught at the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts. He has exhibited widely across the world, and his work is in the collections of many embassies in Guangzhou, as well as the office of UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon.

CURRENT EXHIBITION: “limited edition | édition limitée”1 December, 2016 - 31 January, 2017Prints by Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Damien Hirst and Marc Quinn
Distinct in character, style and artistic medium, presented in this exhibition are individuals whose evolution from humble artist to internationally recognised figure in the art world recounts a larger story of art as an identifiable and accessible brand. Having built their brand persona through a series of thematically unique and distinctive works that have withstood the test of time, these artists have managed to blur the line between art obtainable by the elite and art available to all.
