Music of Love by Nguyen The Dung, Oil on canvas, 135 x 105 cm, 2013.
As part of its effort towards the global promotion of emerging Asian artists, AP Contemporary is pleased to present works by Vietnamese artist Nguyen The Dung (b. 1985) at Art Stage Singapore, January 16th to 19th, 2014. Creating paintings and sculptures through traditional media, his works revolve around an obsessive signature motif: a cow-headed human being. The representation reflects the customary respect towards the countryside animal in Vietnamese culture, but also suggests the herd mentality that spreads within modern society.
Also featured at the fair, paintings by well-known Chinese artist Pu Jie (b.1959) whose works portray the stories of modern city dwellers living in the shadows of China’s current expansion and constant growth.
In addition, the gallery will reveal part of its upcoming programme.
Come to visit us at Booth D26, Art Stage Singapore 2014!
