Vortex will be artist Faizal Yunus’ second solo exhibition at Richard Koh Fine Art.

The exhibition will showcase 19 floor and wall-mounted canvas pieces as the artist’s visual documentation of his response to the changing landscapes due to pollution and global warming.

Wei-Ling Gallery presents a solo exhibition by Sean Lean. In this exhibition called ‘3’, the artworks feature a series of triptychs.

The three panels work collectively as a beginning, middle, and end of sorts, where Lean leaves the gaps in between up for visitors to think about.
