Kwon Kisoo – 2016 Singapore Contemporary Art Show

Stemming from the success of the semi-annual Asia Contemporary Art Shows in Hong Kong, the inaugural Singapore Contemporary took place Jan. 21-24, 2016, coinciding with the annual Singapore Art Week.  A far less overwhelming offering than comparable events in the region such as Art Basel Hong Kong, Singapore Contemporary notably focused on art education in addition to the usual sales, leading tours for children and adults, as well as running art classes for kids.  One of the artists featured in the tours was Kwon Kisoo, who was trained in classical Korean painting at Hongik University but chose to specialize in modern art.
