Gallery & Co. seeks to democratise art and design through collaborations with Singaporean and international brands, artists and designers. The Artist Project invites a diverse mix of creative talents across the fields of art, graphic design and illustration to craft a visual response to a given theme.
“Siapa Nama Kamu?” or, “What is your name?” in Malay, is the title of the inaugural exhibition at the DBS Singapore Gallery. As the history of art in Singapore moves towards the future, it becomes clear that this story is hardly finished.
The products in this first exclusive capsule collaboration are usable and wearable forms of art created by artists and designers as a contemporary take on what Singapore means to them.
About the Artist
Hey is a graphic design and illustration studio based in Barcelona, and they work on finding visual solutions according to the needs of clients. Their style is defined by geometry, colour, typography and bold graphics; a stamp which they also carry over into their personal projects, some of which allows them to break down creative barriers.
Handshake: The whole creative project Hey & Co. seeks to show the most joyful and visual version of Singapore. As part of Hey’s Fusion series, Handshake illustration in red and white –the colours of Singapore– represents cooperation, brotherhood and help. Lending a helping hand is a sign of a peaceful attitude; an essential sign in multicultural societies.
