Held earlier with an exclusive media preview at 1 Michelin Alma by Juan Amador, the International Art Grage has showcased various artists’ paintings featured with their Internationally-patented Pigment and Lighting Methodology.
Waikiki by Walfrido Garcia
The classic view of Waikiki on the southern shores of Oahu is captured by artist Walfrido
Garcia, in a style known as “Romantic Luminism” in which the subjects portrayed goes
beyond the photographic to achieve a sense of timeless perfection with nature. Art Grage
heightens the effect and brings about an artwork that will appeal to all five senses.
Mr. Kazuo Nakano, the Japanese Founder of Art Grage, aims to connect all with universal human emotions such as love, hope, healing, and gratitude through the artworks through the entire appreciation experience curated by himself. He came up with the idea for the world’s first artwork to stimulate the senses and express a space-time change (time flow and transition of season) in one painting.
Life of Satoyama by Syusai
This painting depicts the garden which won the gold medal for ‘the best artisan garden,’
showcased at the Great Spring Show (Chelsea Flower Show UK), hosted by the Royal
Horticulture Society and the Royal Family of Queen Elizabeth II.
Once the show ended, showcased gardens were removed.
However, wanting to preserve this garden in a special way, the Art Grage collaboration was made.
The designer of this garden is Ishihara Kazuyuki. For 3 years from 2006, Kazuyuki received a
gold medal at the Chelsea Flower Show UK (https://www.rhs.org.uk/).
And for 7 years since 2012, she has won the gold medal for ‘the best artisan garden’.
During this time, she was also awarded the best garden award for 5 years,
and the president award in 2016.
In 1994, Mr. Kazuo Nakano successfully developed the Art Grage technology and subsequently had it patented in more than 25 countries. While the paintings are made by various artists, Mr. Kazuo Nakano produces the entire Art Grage experience by directing the music and lighting on top of the art. Art Grage Gallery is headquartered in Ginza, Japan with a branch in Osaka, Japan.
For the very first time officially after staging well-received exhibitions in America and Japan, all art collectors, appreciators together with members of the public will get to view some of the art pieces in Singapore on this coming 27th March.
Art Grage will be showcasing a total of 7 art pieces, highlighting the passing of time, during this exhibition held at Goodwood Park Hotel. The transitions from day to night, or the changes in seasons are uniquely created through the use of internationally-patented pigment and lighting methodology.
Zodiac by Alphonse Mucha
Alfonse Mucha was a Czech painter during the Art Nouveau
period, who originally found fame with his poster designs for
the legendary actress Sarah Bernhardt, but is best known
today for his posters, illustrations and decorative works
characterised by vine-like curves, delicate and long drawn lines.
The Zodiac is one of Mucha’s most popular designs and was
originally designed as an in-house calendar for his printer F.
Champenois. The many facets of Art Grage technology revives
The Zodiac and presents it in an all new light. Art Grage has
exclusive rights for remaking Mucha’s art.
Famed collectors of Art Grage art pieces include the King of Pop Michael Jackson, Bill Clinton, and the King of Saudi Arabia, to name a few. Notable art pieces to be shown at the Art Grage showcase in Singapore includes: Zodiac by Alphonse Mucha, which Art Grage holds the exclusive rights to re-make; and Waikiki by Walfrido Garcia, a Romantic Realist piece by one of the leading artists in Hawaii.
