Inside the Creative Space with Rainer Lagemann
This Thursday, you can get a glimpse into Rainer’s studio, where he will reveal his newest creations and his personal art collection. The German sculptor who is based in Miami, USA, has always been intrigued with the relationship between art, architecture and interior design.
With a background in architecture and interior design himself, the artist is well-known for his large-scale sculptures of human bodies in motion that are composed of multiple hollow steel squares.
With solo exhibitions around the world notably in Singapore, Malaysia, North America and Europe, some of his public projects can be seen locally in the China Square Central Building, Hotel Capri, and at Lyf Funan.
Inside the Creative Space with Coplu
Haven’t been to Turkey? No problem – grab your chance at viewing this elusive and private artist’s art studio in Antalya, Turkey as he talks about his life-long journey in art next Thursday (18th June).
Coplu’s distinct style of painting is characterized by use of vibrant colours and love, influenced by his mother who was a weaver, while depicting themes of family and togetherness. His hopeful and emotive series of paintings serve as constant reminders of the power of love and familial bonds. Using recurring motives such as heart-shaped trees, clouds, and human figures to encapsulate love, dream, and hope, Coplu has been captivating viewers of all ages for decades.
One of Coplu’s sculptures, titled “Nature of Love” can be found at Changi Airport in the arrival hall of Terminal 4. The artist has exhibited all over Asia, Europe, and North America.
