Amidst our busy and fast-paced lifestyles, isn’t it just blissful to have a day off, where you can head down to the beach, take carefree, breezy strolls and enjoy a bicycle ride with your love one whilst relishing in the stunning view of the sunset?
You can experience such simplistic-yet-euphoric moments at Here and Now, the latest exhibition by internationally acclaimed, Beijing-born sculptor and painter Wu Qiong, who is back in Singapore with artworks that showcase his distinctive post-pop and neo cartoon style.

Happening from 8 November – 21 November 2015 at Ode to Art at Raffles City Singapore, the exhibition which took the artist a year to prepare, celebrates his transition to bronze sculpting.
By inviting his viewers to a state of mind replete with luscious dreamscapes, whimsical compositions and characters with upturn faces and shut eyes, Wu Qiong aims to reveal the visceral emotions and unseen side of the human’s spirit.
At the same time as well, he also stayed true to his iconic art aesthetic – one that reflects a generation absorbed with graphic novels, comics, digital worlds, animation and gaming.
To date, his artworks have been acquired by the Beijing Poly International Auction, the biggest auction house in China.
The Here and Now exhibition by Wu Qiong at the Ode to Art gallery, Raffles City is open to public from 8 – 21 November 2015. Admission is free.
