Have you ever been moved by art; a painting, sculpture, photograph, abstract structure, nature, music—you know—art? If you have, then you also know that sometimes you can’t place your finger on the reason why it moves you but you recognize the resonating feeling in your heart. If you don’t have a piece of artwork like this in your home or residence then I encourage you to explore this world in which you have been missing. Art is not about the purchase price or the artist who created it, but the individual meaning or connection that it has with its owner. Art is an experience.
Shih Yun Yeo of Singapore and owner of Instinc art studio wants to create such a moment with artists from around the globe. One of the most memorable experiences for Shih Yun was during a 2008 art event in Slovenia. She and other artist were paired up for a series of days and together collaborated on original art projects. Now, Shih Yun will host such an event in her home country—Singapore.
Since the event will be held at Instinc in honor of its 10th anniversary, the celebration of art collaboration will be called Instinc10. The event will feature 10 artists. Five of the artist are from Singapore and the other five are from other nations. The internationals will each be paired with an artist from Singapore. The artists will work together over the course of 10 days to produce various canvases and an installation or sculpture. “I think one of the most important things for an artist is the friendship and support from other artists, I hope that this, the great collaboration, will be a catalyst for these 10 artists”, says Shih Yun.
Those who back Instinc’s Indiegogo campaign will find some neat perks ranging from postcards, prints, original artwork, signed artwork, all the way to a collaborative art jam session with your friends and more.
I could tell in her voice—Shih Yun loves what she does and wants to make a lasting impression on people through art. The Instinc10 celebration aims to do just that. And not only that, depending on the community response and money raised through the campaign, Shih Yun mentioned that she would like to have regular cadence with this type of collaborative art exchange.
The Intinc10 promises to be a fabulous event with a strong POP factor for the studio. Happy anniversary Shih Yun Yeo.
