Lady Security Guard (in blue). Polyester resin and oil paint (162.6cm x 61cmx 43.2cm)
<b>by</b> Marc Sijan.
Art imitates life, and never more so than in Opera Gallery’s hyperrealistic art showcase running from May 5 to 21, featuring works by Serbian-American artist Marc Sijan and Italian artist Roberto Bernardi. Sijan communicates a deep sense of humanism through his life-like creations made from resin, oil paint and varnish. Bernardi is a photorealistic painter who transforms photographs to paintings using traditional oil-on-canvas techniques, and whose style brings to mind “trompe l’oeil” (French for “to deceive the eye”).
Knock Out, (acrylic on canvas, 120cm x 120cm), by JonOne.
American graffiti artist JonOne has gone from painting trains in New York at night to exhibiting in major museums all over Europe, Asia and the US. Most recently, he graced Art Stage Singapore 2017, designed a canvas for the French Parliament titled “Liberte, Egalite and Fraternite”, which later was made into a stamp, and worked with Air France on artwork for one of its Boeing 777 planes. Selected works by JonOne are viewable as part of the gallery’s permanent collection.
Laurent Baheux's Lion in the Wind 2.
Photographer Laurent Baheux started out in sports and current affairs photography before realising that he had a passion for wildlife. For the last 15 years, he has travelled to the last remaining protected areas on Earth, getting close to – and photographing – some of the most beautiful wild animals.
