The group show features contributions from artists including Woon Tien Wei, Jennifer Teo, Yang Jie, Wen Chao, and other Singaporean artists, advocates, and misfits. Ai Weiwei is donating three silkscreened masks in artist display specifications for the show. They will be sold at EUR 1,000 each, and the proceeds will go to Amnesty International. The idea of “FOOLS” is to generate awareness and support for young local art. To tell these folks to stay creative and positive. We need fresh minds and fresh ideas that aren’t restricted by the material world to inspire us and to unite us,” says Lim Chiao Woon, founder/owner of Mr Lim’s Shop of Visual Treasures.
Why FOOLS deserves your attention:
- Discover artists you may not yet know; whose work you'll come to love - Art with a strong point of view, irreverent, a story to tell.
- Made with more effort - This collection of work is the result of over-thinking and over-crafting because every piece means that much more. Our artists don’t have 30 studio hands to execute their vision.
- More original - You can only get them at Mr Lim’s Shop of Visual Treasures. You’ll be getting one of a kind pieces - or in small editions.
- The art is affordable with the potential to increase in value - Collectors will be buying these pieces from ground level up.
About Mr Lim’s Shop of Visual Treasures: Mr Lim's Shop of Visual Treasures was founded by Lim Chiao Woon. After plying his trade in advertising for 20 years, he became the creative director at Bose for five years. In January 2021, Chiao Woon was diagnosed with cancer. Rounds of chemotherapy took Chiao Woon’s mind on a world tour of thoughts, one of them was to pursue his love of art, and by July, that landed him in a small corner of Tanglin Shopping Centre. Thus Mr Lim’s Shop of Visual Treasures was born. The shop showcases Chiao Woon’s personal collection, which includes the work of Ai Weiwei, Banksy, and Kaws — all of which are for sale.
