Hong Kong recently hosted the prestigious Art Basel art fair. The fair is basically an international arena where works by gifted, but relatively unknown artists are highlighted. Among those whose work stood out is Jakarta-based sculptor Ichwan Noor. His piece is a bright yellow, 1953 Volkswagen Beetle cunningly crafted into a perfect sphere. . Ichwan has also exhibited internationally, such as in Bologna, Italy with “Pleasure of Chaos" (2010) and Art Stage Singapore (2010). His proficiency in various techniques needed to make large-scale, three-dimensional art works has earned him the nickname “The Maker" from other artists.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
