If you haven’t had the time to catch SUPER FUTURE, which is currently on show at the MAD Museum of Art & Design, Singapore, there is still time from now to 12 Mar 2017 to catch stunning artworks from 10 European artists, making their debut here in Singapore.
Curated by MAD Museum’s founder Jasmine Tay, in collaboration with Manfredi Moretti, Founder and Creative Director of Manfredi Style, the exhibition is a tasteful put-together of carefully picked paintings, high-end furnishings and colourful prints.
Key highlights of the show are Alessandro Rabatti’s Facebank series of prints that feature a play on comic-book satire on famous world-leaders. The print art serves to reflect on the tumultuous state of world currency with a playful eye, juxtaposing images of bank notes from all over the world with motifs from comic book superheroes (a wry commentary on today’s opportunistic globalization). Another one to note is the state-of-the-art furniture by Leonardo Di Caprio, who incidentally, shares the same name as the famous Hollywood actor. Di Caprio’s stunning marquetry-inspired works are all individually assembled and lacquered by hand, featuring cutting-edge geometric designs inspired by Brazilian jewelry motifs.
“I have always been a fan of works that have a strong message, be it street art influenced works or furniture design that are pushing the creative envelope and challenging the way art and its medium can be interpreted,” says Jasmine. “These artworks from Europe, which is the first time that they are being presented here, certainly represent these qualities with their vivid imageries and elaborate craftsmanship which reflect the possibilities of future technological advances.”
