From 11 to 13 January, look forward to witnessing a live painting demonstration on a six-metre-long panel by renowned French-Vietnamese graffiti artist Cyril Kongo (@cyril_kongo), as he shares his poetic universe of letters through his abstract works. Often reflecting transcendent messages of love and the joy of living through dazzling colours and contemporary lettering, Cyril desires to paint his love for street art with the next generation of aspiring artists.
In the early evenings of 11 and 12 January, Cyril will be joined by young aspiring visual arts talents who are beneficiaries of The Business Times Budding Artists Fund (BT BAF) to paint the canvas. The completed masterpiece will be made available for auction, where proceeds will go towards BT BAF, enabling children and youth from financially disadvantaged backgrounds to learn, discover and nurture their potential in the arts. Fans and collectors will get to join in a special meet and greet session with the artist on 13 January, and purchase limited runs of his artwork on A2 posters (S$21.60 each) at the outdoor Rain Oculus and Marina Bay Sands’ gift shops at ArtScience Museum and the Hotel.
These activities will take place at the Event Plaza alongside an art exhibition by Cyril that runs daily until 15 January between 10am and 8pm.
