Future, Present and Past
16 January - 15 February 2015
Element Art Space is pleased to present “Future, Present and Past,” the first Singapore solo exhibition by Arkiv Vilmansa.
Since his debut in 2005, Vilmansa’s works have been featured in galleries in US, Germany, Australia and Indonesia, and he has collaborated with artists and companies such as Huck Gee, Disney, Something.Ill, Pot Meets Pop, Adfunture, Plastic Culture and My Tummy Toys. Vilmansa pegs childhood characters and his architecture background as significant influences on his art. “I like a few animals that have an aura of evil and (are) also funny,” he said, citing Mickey Mouse, pandas and killer whales as examples which helped spawn his iconic “Mickiv” character. Over the past several years, Vilmansa’s iconic character, “Mickiv,” has made the artist a household name within the lowbrow art and toy culture scene in US and Indonesia.
