STANDOUT ARTISTS

Rovi Salegumba

Philippines


Rovi Salegumba’s (b.1984) preferred medium in painting is oil. He derives inspirations from nature and environment, poetry, literature, music, myths and legends and at times personal experiences. He weaves fascinating and inspiring stories related to him by people, sometimes dabbling in metaphysical & spiritual. Most common subjects in his paintings are stylized human figures using birds to symbolize his personal metaphor for soul or spirit.


Recognizing the profound impact of art on those who perceive it, Salegumba sees to it that his paintings leave the viewer in a more positive state, that the artworks encourage a more optimistic outlook, or that it uplifts the viewer in some way.


Chae Soung Sook

South Korea


To the artist, Chae Soung-Sook, who prioritizes the achievement of the overall atmosphere rather than depicting details on the canvas surface, color plays an important role in rendering her mood and sensibility, but the element that she truly wants to depict is the fragmentation of light over colored surfaces.


Chae works in a unique way, adding wool thread to her otherwise conventional canvases, producing a fluid wave of veil-like texture over the paintings, softly covering the pictorial elements underneath. This texture reflects light, creating a dreamy atmosphere with a soft shimmer, like misty haze on a late spring morning.


Mother and Child 22

Aung Myint

Myanmar


Myanmar artist Aung Myint (b.1946) is known for his mother and child inspired drawings. Drawn with a single unbroken line of black acrylic they evoke an intimate physical connection between the two figures.

 

As a self-taught artist, he works with painting and installation and is regarded as one of the pioneers of performance and experimental art in Myanmar. He loves to experiment with different mediums to explore the themes of cultural identity and personal memories. His practice often questions the place of small collectives within larger communities, both within and outside the borders of his homeland. The artist’s works can be found at the Guggenheim and the National Gallery Singapore.
