“This is my top choice from the Art Stage, really love the whole piece. I enjoyed the tea ceremony, but also all the objects, the art pieces. The artist impressed me by building this architectural structure within an art fair and creating such a Zen ambiance within the bustle and hustle of an overwhelming art market”.

“Native American artist, Jeffrey Gibson uses a lot of Native American beads for the artwork, he also incorporates lyrics from contemporary songs. One of the artworks that I really really interested in, it says ‘Be Here with Me Now’, which is like from a very sentimental song.”

“I really like the Indonesian artist Made Valasara from Equator Art Projects. Made Wiguna Valasara is an artist known for doing a lot of embroidery work. He uses stitching very often. But for this art fair, he finally took many of the images outside the canvas, so it looks like soft sculptures. I just love it so much.”

“It looks like a splash! The way she did it in order to get the photograph is to throw a huge stone into a lake. I just like the work because it’s a little loud and quiet at the same time.”
