Do you like to visit art galleries? There are many different types of art galleries around the world. If you like art, science, or history, there are galleries that will inspire and delight you.
I visited an interesting art gallery recently filled with surprises. Located in a nondescript corner on the second floor of Singapore Raffles Hotel Arcade, Art Now is a gallery that makes creative designs and intriguing art pieces accessible to the public with free admission. For those who enjoy both art and culture, why not visit Art Now gallery that offers both.
The whole space is cosy and filled with a bewildering array of creations that run the gamut of pop art and the contemporary to 2D and 3D fine art, as well as fashion and other unique lifestyle items. From the architecture to the interior design, the gallery also includes bespoke furniture.
Celebrity wax figures are always a popular tourist attraction. In Art Now, there are renowned life-sized wax figures of iconic artists, from Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali to Vincent Van Gogh, alongside others like Albert Einstein. Visitors are free to snap a picture with the wax figure of Pablo Picasso, the most dominant and influential artist of the first half of the 20th century.
If you've ever seen a wax figure up close, you know how lifelike they are. In fact, people can mistake a wax figure for the real person from just a few feet away. Sometimes a figure will look nearly identical to the star — so much so that it can be hard to tell the real celebrity from the wax one.
Whenever I see celebrity wax figures, I always look at them and think about how cool they look.
Interestingly, there is a tub of "F*** You Lah" balls by FLABSLAB which you can take some cool selfies with.
Here's a famous quote:
“In life you throw a ball. You hope it will reach a wall, and bounce back so you can throw it again. You hope your friends will provide that wall.”
The realistic wax sculptures will get you wondering if you’ve travelled back in time to meet these brilliant minds in the flesh.
I wonder how do artists create such lifelike figures out of wax? I guess if an artist is going to make a lifelike wax figure, he or she is going to need lots of two things: time and money. I think that's not all they’ll need, though. They’ll need plenty of artistic flair, as well as a wide range of sophisticated tools and materials.
For serious art collectors who are looking for new pieces to take home, Art Now has seasonal collections by various designers and artists.
In Art Now, you will find a wide array of Bearbricks collectables that are available for purchase. Each of the figures is stored in a plastic casing to prevent the accumulation of dust and to keep them in pristine condition. While you can’t touch them, you can admire and take pictures together with these rare items.
If you happen to be in the city area, why not plan a trip to Art Now to explore the creative art scene in Singapore. This would make a great convenient, or budget-friendly date idea, since admission is free.
