Singapore is becoming Cutting Edge, and that’s exactly what the latest exhibition at Opera Gallery is called.

Opera Gallery is a network of 11 contemporary art galleries worldwide that were first opened in 1994 by Gilles Dyan. Currently, the global fan favorite gallery is present in most of the world’s major art capitals, including the original gallery in Paris, then in Singapore, New York, Miami, Hong Kong, London, Venice, Seoul, Dubai, and Monaco.

Cutting Edge showcases LED lights, lenticular prints and craftily installed mirrors created by four artists from around the world. Korean artist Bae Joon Sung and Italian artists Umberto Ciceri both created lenticular prints which is a technique mixing several images to construct the effect of a moving picture. When you walk toward the art piece or alter your viewing angle, the images appear to also shift in motion and merge.

The exhibition also features No Art, the French artist, who’s mirror placement is displayed in conjunction with LED lights to create humor and visual effects that deliver an extraordinary optical-illusion.

Since the 1990s, the Singapore government has been promoting the country as a center for arts and culture, and to transform the country into a cosmopolitan “gateway between the East and West.” With the recent years of the rich and famous pinning Singapore as a stopover, thanks to its tax-free policies, culture and art have been thriving in a destination where 5 million locals call home.
