(OTC: COSG), will be showcasing a curated show of the 4 most exciting emerging artists from Southeast Asia – Umibaizurah (Malaysia), David Chan (Singapore), Gatot Indrajati (Indonesia) and Komkrit Tepthian (Thailand) in collaboration with Art Seasons.
To recap, ART SG is the most hotly anticipated premium art fair of 2023, and is presented by founding and lead partner UBS which will be showcasing more than 150 leading international galleries from Southeast Asia, Asia Pacific and around the world. The inaugural edition will take place at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre in Singapore, featuring leading galleries, Gagosian, Pace, White Cube, ShangArt, and Art Seasons amongst many others.
Commenting on the upcoming ART SG showcase, Terry Lee, Chief Executive Officer of Coinllectibles says, “The co-presentation for ART SG between Coinllectibles and Art Seasons is a good marriage of art and technology, hence we are looking forward to showcase our art and tech expertise to the 40,000 strong visitors who will be visiting the fair. This presents a great opportunity for us to not only feature the works of the emerging artists we are working with to help them gain exposure, but also to allow art buyers and collectors the chance to experience our 3D technology in person. Visitors to our booth will be treated to an immersive art experience and they will be able to purchase our 15.6 inch 3D tablets which will contain a 3D art DOT and a limited edition signed print by the artist. I believe our 3D art DOTs are one of the firsts to be launched in Singapore which will give Coinllectibles a strong foothold within the art scene in the region.”

About Umibaizurah (1975)
Umibaizurah is a ceramic artist born in 1975 in Malaysia. Umi’s sculptures’ subjects are often animals common in our environment, and her works explore the interaction of human activity and our relationship with the physical environment today. The seriousness of her subject matter is camouflaged by the playful visual quality of her ceramic sculptures and assemblages. Many of her works are imagined hybrids of species, objects, and machinery, linking many issues concerning our modern world. She has always tried to push the traditional boundaries of contemporary ceramic work, reflecting the politics and economics of her country, community living, immigration, and many other issues that we face today, both domestically and globally. Since 1997, Umi has participated in exhibitions across Malaysia, South-east Asia, Asia, and Europe. She represented Malaysia in the 2009 Jakarta Contemporary Ceramic Biennale #1, 2012 Jakarta Contemporary Ceramic Biennale #2, 2011 Cheongju Craft Biennale, and 2009 Asia Ceramics Network South Korea. She attended several ceramics residency programmes, ceramic symposiums, art talks, and ceramic workshops in Thailand, Indonesia, Korea, Japan, and Europe. Her artworks have garnered several international awards and are collected both locally by; National Art Gallery Malaysia, Petronas Galeri Malaysia, Ilham Gallery, and individual collectors and internationally.
About David Chan (1979)
David has a Master’s in Education (Arts) from the National Institute of Education and a Bachelor’s of Arts (Fine Art, First Class Honours) from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. Born and raised in Singapore, David Chan was able to enjoy early success in his career; at age 25, he became a full-time artist with his first sold-out solo exhibition – Genetic Wonderland. The same year, he also won the 23rd UOB Painting of the Year – Representational Medium Category Award. David has had 7 solo exhibitions in Singapore and 2 overseas; the most recent was “Grey Gap” in 2022. He has also exhibited in several countries, including China, America, Taiwan, Indonesia, Korea, and Malaysia. In 2011 he exhibited his work at the 54th Venice Biennale at the Fondazione Claudio Buziol. The same work travelled to the Wereldmuseum Rotterdam in the Netherlands the following year. In addition, David has participated in the Singapore 2016/2017 Biennale. In the exhibition, he built a gigantic installation in front of the National Museum of the Arts titled: The Great East Indiaman. In addendum to painting and sculpting, David also lectures at the National Institute of Education and Art Design & Media at the Nanyang Technological University. David’s collectors include the Singapore Art Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Taipei, and many important private collections worldwide.
About Gatot Indrajati (1980)
The overarching Gatot’s philosophy in making art is to explore the unnoticed things that appealed to him, from everyday life; the simple pleasure. He finds no satisfaction in major themes like socio-political or humans and identities, etc., as he feels one cannot be truthful in the realms of such topics. From his early days of conceptualising the wooden dolls, his army of love, Gatot is clearly reminiscing on simple things that look fun, a temporary pleasure perhaps. A hug, a smile, playing the guitar, washing hair, or gardening, all are simple things that always happened in our daily life, too common it often escapes to be observed or remembered. We forget that simple and ordinary things often bring happiness, although short but are very meaningful to our life. Today, Gatot paintings took a more mythical, fairy tale liked expressions, a hybrid of both world, real and fictional, but still brimming with simple things that is his signature on the canvas. Born 1980, Indonesia, Gatot’s works have been presented at Singapore Art Museum (2019) and Museum MACAN, Jakarta, Indonesia (2018-19), among many others. Gatot received the UOB Southeast Asian Painting of the Year Award in 2016.
About Komkrit Tepthian (1985)
Komkrit Tepthian lives in Bangkok, Thailand. Received his BA in Department of Fine Arts at King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang (2007) and MA in Sculpture (2015) at Silpakorn University. Like many of his educated peers of today, Komkrit has not seen the 1970s coups, which were inspired by the students of that day to take a stand and demand a greater say and in democracy in Thailand. The subsequent student massacres and extrajudicial killings by the army were the most discoursed in the modern history of Thailand. The current socio-political status in Thailand motivates and expresses the ethos of Komkrit’s artworks, which is a major influence in his art-making process. He has participated in many international exhibitions and conferences; as Bangkok Art Biennale 2018 (Thailand), ASIA NOW, Paris Asian Art Fair 2018 (France), Art Central Hong Kong 2018, etc. He is also a special lecturer at Department of Fine Arts, King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang.
