Presenting more than 800 original works of art installed in guest rooms, X EDITION 2018 – Asia’s Largest Photography Hotel Art Fair features contemporary photo art. Highlight of the art fair includes an exciting speaker series line-up over the 3-day exhibition where visitors can learn more photo art techniques, new technologies and processes in today’s world of photography. Featured artists include Russel Wong, Stephen Schaub, Season Lao and Charlie Lim, among others.
Russel Wong, a name familiar to a wide spectrum of those beyond the industry, is a celebrity photographer to movie superstars like Jackie Chan, Jet Li, Tony Leong, Chow Yun Fat, Zhang Ziyi, Michelle Yeoh, Bruce Willis, Richard Gere, Tom Cruise, Joan Chen, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Michael Jackson, Yoyo Ma and Luciano Parvarotti.
Stephen Schaub, a prolific New York based fine-art photographer whose works have been described as “art dreaming about itself” presents his visual art pieces for the first time in Asia and in Singapore. One stunning visual art piece on display titled ‘Mirror’ is a 29” x 84” pigment on Cherry Wood taken in a camera collage on film.
Season Lao, an award-winning artist based in Sapporo, showcases his art pieces which examine the balance between nature and human beings. Having designed souvenirs for Louis Vuitton, his art and activities expanded internationally since he was invited to be creative director for a Japanese design company at the age of 23. Season’s work sees a return to pure art forms, with his desire to compare modern metropolis to a simple and honest country life.
