This year, while the Heritage Festival is set to take over the island, COSH Studios is ready to take over Pearl’s Hill.
With all the comics from their first and second phases of publication released, the artists behind each title will be showcasing their works at ArtBlovk, in conjunction with the Singapore Heritage Festival 2018. “We want to give audiences a glimpse into how we use comics as a medium to show that stories can happen anywhere – especially in places around us,” Koh Hong Teng, a member of COSH Studios and the artist of Coalition of the Savoury Spare Parts said.
As it is written, works from COSH titles Coalition of the Savoury Spare Parts, Final Resting Place, Guidebook to Nanyang Diplomacy, Kungfu Dough, Terumbu, Unstable Foundations, and We’ll Eat When We’re Done will showcase behind-the-scenes sketches, originals, or prints. With a crew comprised of both industry veterans and new names, so be prepared for a spectrum of styles and stories. See something you like? Certain pieces will be up for sale or get your own copy of any of the titles on sale at the gallery – so you can take a piece of heritage home with you! Artblovk staff will be there to manage all purchases.
The COSH Studios Heritage Comics Exhibition will be a month-long exhibition at Artblovk from 13 April 2018 to 13 May 2018. Come down for the exhibition launch on 13 April, 7 PM to 9 PM. Entry is free.
COSH (Comics of Singapore Heritage) Studios is a loose collective of comic artists and writers who want to tell stories inspired by local and regional heritage, through the medium of comics.
