Demonstrating an immense range of artistic expressions and themes within the Southeast Asian region, this season’s day sale offers an exceptional collection of pieces. Here, classic works by some of Southeast Asia’s most illustrious masters such as Lee Man Fong, Pham Hau, Affandi and Liu Kang showcase their pioneering innovations in medium and technique. These pieces capture the region’s layered histories and cultural diversity in a timeless visual style that remains beloved across generations.
These early modern works then stand alongside the contemporary avant-garde of the 21st Century. The sale celebrates the visionary, inventive spirit of the region’s most audacious rising artists, from Jigger Cruz to Christine Ay Tjoe, as they reimagine the idea of paint and canvas itself, establishing their own highly individualistic artistic languages. Beyond this, their works represent all the dynamism and creativity Southeast Asia offers, to become one of the fastest-growing cultural centres in the world today.
Some prominent highlights this season include Srihadi Sudarsono’s Landscape, Fernando Zobel’s Naranja Y Gris, Hendra Gunawan’s Golden Fish Seller and Arin Sunaryo’s Qerramath triptych.
