Exhibition

Naughty or Nice?

Exhibiting Artists: Desmond Sim

Venue: Utterly Art 229A South Bridge Road > venue details

Dates: 02 Dec 2011 - 11 Dec 2011

It’s that time of the year again, and as the Christmas carols jingle, we are asked if we’ve been naughty or nice. In this collection of paintings, Desmond continues his journey remembering juvenile mischief and pleasures - all seen through the lens of a Peranakan childhood.

It’s a lively, traumatic world of gift spiders and wriggly, squishy lizards, or gleeful birthday surprises, quality time spent with a loved one, and Christmas presents – all remembered in vivid technicolour, with a dollop of fuzzy warm feelings... that stay with all of us for life.

Artist

  • Desmond Sim

    Singapore

    In the Peranakan-styled art that he is now best known for, Desmond is totally self-taught, although a strong influence from Modigliani, Rousseau, de Lempicka and Art Deco is prevalent. He paints for the sheer pleasure of the colours… and for the sheer freedom offered by pristine canvases. While his day job has totally to do with words, his passion for painting totally takes up the other side of his brain in his free time.
