While Art For All is smaller in size than the full convention center-sized Art Expo Malaysia, this art fair is an important one for Artemis Art for a few reasons. For starters, it’s the first domestic and in-person art fair we’re a part of in the better part of the last two years. Also, a few of the artists featured are exhibiting with us for the first time, plus for a few of them, their art fair debut. 

For additional information about our participation or enquiries about the artworks, contact us at [email protected], or via any of the communication channels listed at the top right corner.

Adeline Buenaventura

b. 1971 in the Philippines

Currently based in Bangkok, Thailand, Adeline Buenaventura is a self-taught mixed media artist, with a passion for colors and graphics, and is greatly inspired by the pop art milieu. Her fiberglass- and marble powder-reinforced resin sculptures are finished free hand, with always fun, bright, and eclectic colors, infused with voluptuous roundness and sensual lines, and look more like they have been created from blown glass or porcelain.

Ajim Juxta

b. 1983 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Raja Azeem Idzham, better known as Ajim Juxta, is a multi-talented artist who’s formal training is in architecture. While visual art is the primary outlet for his creative wellspring, Ajim is also a talented musician and writer.

His abstract works are akin to organic blueprints created to make sense of a world that the artist sees as having gone wrong in more ways than one. Among his visual articulations are the many dystopian realities that have manifested themselves while individuals and societies pursue personal utopias, important aspects of life that rightly deserve more attention, becoming neglected in the process.

Angelo Magno

b. 1979 in the Philippines

Angelo Magno is an artist and academician based in Metro Manila, whose primary mode of art production is printmaking. His series of disembodied mask-like faces are the result of his observations and analysis of the many personalities he has encountered, part of a vast collection of fragmented stories told through faces and the expressions they carry.

Bibichun

b. 1983 in Malaysia

Bibichun is an artist who concerns himself with issues such as authorship, identity, and what he construes as “public sites” within the context of George Town in Penang, where he lives and works. His artworks are often visual critiques and responses to issues that are of concern to him, either in the form of paintings, objects, or sometimes interventions of existing mural works, from which he observes reactions and responses from the general public.

Carl Modelo

b. 1994 in the Philippines

With layering and dry brush techniques in his acrylic paintings, his pieces birth characters that are equal parts candy-sweet and salty as tears. Having been fascinated by Fernando Botero’s works in his student days, he too started painting rotund and voluptuous figures with magnanimous personalities inspired by Fllipino pop-surrealist Luis Lorenzana’s quirky characters, then moved on to oddballs of his own invention – coneheads in pinks and purples he calls wanderers, each creature sporting its very own disposition and story with emotionally expressive faces as their bodies. Lines make up for limbs as they hop, skip and dance across the minimally adorned canvas, at times accompanied by text that add a layer of significance as it expounds on the image.

Chang Chiung Fang

b. 1984 in Taipei, Taiwan

Combining strong expressive tendencies and bold strokes in her works, Taipei-born Chang Chiung Fang’s embodies free-spirited expressions of life as it is experienced and observed. Much of what she expresses are autobiographical, basing her art on her own experiences, through the lenses of continuous self-discovery and understanding, enabling her to better express ideas and stories she wishes to convey.

Dedy Sufriadi

b. 1976 in Palembang, Indonesia

Contemporary abstract artist Dedy Sufriadi has a wide repertoire of work and styles, encompassing the use of many different elements. The many disparate visual styles that can be found across his vast body of work can be tied together by one common trait – his mastery of color and composition. Dedy is perhaps best known for his work related to text, an element of modern life that humans are subject to at virtually every waking moment, whether realized or not.

2022 will be a very important year for Dedy. Later this month, he will be featured as part of Artemis Art’s participation in Art Solo 2022, taking place at the EXPO Dome, Taipei Expo Park, in Taipei, Taiwan, from 15 to 17 April. This marks Dedy’s major art fair debut in Taiwan. In addition, Dedy will be making his exhibition debut in Europe when the European Cultural Centre Italy (ECC Italy) launches their Venice Biennale satellite event, Personal Structures: Reflection, in parallel with the main Biennale, from 23 April to 27 November 2022.

Jaime Pacena II

b. 1980 in the Philippines

Jaime Pacena II is a multimedia artist, educator and curator whose many talents include video direction for the advertising and music video industries, plus mentorship in learning programs and collaborations within the visual-creative industry. His series of “still life” works are more than just depictions of objects but is the artist’s response to how life has been “made still” due to the global COVID19 pandemic which hit the Philippines in a big way, bringing the bustle and hustle of everyday life to a virtual standstill.

Kimberley Boudville

b. 1999 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Young Malaysian artist Kimberley Boudville is a recent graduate from the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in Singapore, and is a very versatile artist, adept at a variety of mediums used in her art creation. Much of her recent works deal with grief and loss, and how these form important components of the human experiential cycle.

The selected works by Kimberley at Art For All will be a teaser of sorts for the artist’s second solo exhibition, which is scheduled to begin late April at The Backroom KL. We will be providing more details as the exhibition date draws closer.

Leik Lim

b. 1991 in Ipoh, Malaysia

Important cartoon characters reminisced from her childhood form symbolic ties between childlike attributes of love, purity, and liberty, with the realities of adult life. Strongly influenced by contemporary surrealist pop art, and produced in vivid colors, Leik Lim likens her creations to “soft confrontations” between attributes and sensibilities of her childhood that persist, with the complexities and intrigue of the adult world.

Leik Lim is the artist name for Ipoh-based Lim Lei Kwan, whom Artemis Art is showing for the first time. Art For All marks the artist’s Malaysian art fair debut, having had success in both the China and Taiwan art markets.

Low Chee Peng

b. 1975 in Penang, Malaysia

If you’ve visited George Town, Penang, in the past five or so years, you will very likely have seen public art created by self-taught sculptor Low Chee Peng. Of particular note is the “The Last Tree”, near the corner of Lebuh Pantai and Lebuh Armenian, commissioned by George Town Festival in 2013. For Chee Peng, public art is a responsibility, providing communities with a strong sense belonging and character.

The artist’s inclusion in our line up marks Chee Peng’s first time exhibiting with Artemis Art in an art fair.

Muhammad Amirul Azman

b. 1994 in Singapore

Amirul works with various mediums including digital illustrations, photography, creative direction and recently, painting. Fascinated with all things kitsch, bizarre and surreal, Amirul creates unnaturally distorted figures, juxtaposing them in a surrealistic approach that disrupts the line between reality and imagination.

This is Amirul’s first time exhibiting his artworks in Malaysia. In addition, Amirul is also the first Singaporean artist we have shown, making his inclusion in our lineup a double “first”.

Oky Antonius

b. 1994 in Indonesia

Oky Antonius is a young artist who has been very active in the Yogyakarta visual art scene, participating in numerous group exhibitions while still being a student at the prestigious Indonesian Institute of the Arts, pursuing his baccalaureate in Fine Art. His color palette is mature, the textured expressionist figurations depicting events drawn from his own memories. The skilled tapestry-like rendering on canvas never fails to elicit a closer look from viewers. One could certainly call his works a visual interpretation of the phrase “fabric of life”.

Rangga A Putra

b. 1995 in Indonesia

Since his childhood, Rangga A Putra (Rangga Anugrah Putra) has been interested in painting, a pure pleasure for him. Up until today Rangga has already participated in numerous shows in Indonesia and has received several awards. Anselm Kiefer, George Baselitz, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Jean Dubuffet, Antoni Tàpies and Zao Wouki are some of the “legend” artists (as he likes to call them) who have inspired him. Monochrome colors are his typical landmark, where colors bring the nuance of deep reflection.

Ronald Caringal

b. 1980 in the Philippines

Manila-based Ronald Caringal has been described as the “Pop Art antithesis of a pop artist”, his art employing vivid color palettes used to depict familiar imagery yet carry a deeper undertone that defies what’s seen on the surface.

The treatment he gives to popular cultural iconography can vary from darkly humorous to downright crude, but what the artist presents is a gritty aesthetic reflection of modern-day urban life. We can glean much that is familiar in Ronald’s works, forcing us to ponder and think exactly why we get that feeling of familiarity.

Silas Oo

b. 1996 in Malaysia

Silas Oo graduated with a Diploma in Fine Art from The One Academy in 2017. He primarily works in the medium of painting and drawing, with a particular interest in the conditions of post-Y2K modernity and pop culture.

Apart from artmaking, Silas also models for runways and editorials. This allows him to be in tune with the surface and appearance-level of culture that forms so much of his generation’s addition to technology and sense of self, both of which he interrogates deeper and articulates in his art.

Syahbandi Samat

b. 1992 in Malaysia

His use of the ordinary ballpoint pen has made self-taught Malaysian artist Syahbandi Samat one of the more unique Malaysian artists currently practicing, and whose works are almost always instantly recognizable.

Recently becoming a father, Syahbandi’s works currently delve deeper into his own psyche, projecting his inner thoughts, experiences, and aspirations. Successfully breaking away from the need to “please” with his artistic creations, Syahbandi addresses issues that are important to him, such as corruption, the environment, and of course, introspective works dealing with his own life experiences.

Art For All sees the debut of Syahbandi’s sculptural interpretation of images he has previously included in his ballpoint artworks, something that we hope to see more of from the artist in times to come.

Taufik Ermas

b. 1984 in Indonesia

The dialectics of space and delving into what lies behind human psychological scarring are among the ideas central to the current body of work by Indonesian artist Taufik Ermas. He survived a near-tragedy during the major 2006 Yogyakarta earthquake that caused his home to collapse, burying him alive for a short period before being rescued.

Canvas augmentation is a central feature to his current body of work, either through physical canvas frame modifications to create negative space within his visual narratives, or through his layer/contour technique, where Taufik creates physical ridges (or its inverse, niches) on the canvas surface without tearing through or cutting the canvas.
