"Please, sir, I want some more."  -  Oliver Twist, Charles Dickens

Humans are beings of wants and desires.   Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs postulated that human motivation is driven by unsatisfied needs – once a need is mostly satisfied, it will cease to motivate and the next higher need will take its place. We first satisfy lower-order needs such as food, sleep and warmth, then progress to safety and stability, before thinking of good family and work relationships, achievement and esteem, finally leading to personal growth and self-actualization.
 
In 21st century Singapore which has achieved developed country status, what drives its citizens to strive beyond a full belly and comfortable condominium? What about our foreign friends who want a piece of our sizzling economic pie? In particular, how do artists view this never-ending quest to improve our lot and aim for the stars?

Utterly Art celebrates ten years in the rough and tumble of a very dynamic local art scene, which now boasts hundreds of galleries, stimulating museum presentations, regular auctions, art fairs and our very own biennale. When we began, we were the first to bridge the gap between a bare exhibition hall for hire and a commercial gallery which provided artists with its marketing and curatorial expertise. Today, literally several hundred artists have exhibited under the Utterly Art banner, we are supported by twin pillars of artistic strength in our Singapore and Philippine artists, and our frenetic presentations average thirty exhibitions a year, both within and beyond our Chinatown home.

What MORE could we want?

    Paul Koh

    Singapore

    Ever since he was a child, Paul has been illustrating and drawing. Growing up with cats also means that his two passions are inextricably linked. He experimented with different forms of expressions (from portraiture and figurative to pop and abstract) before finding his element in his "Catmasutra" series, which inevitably continues the catty tales of his cats, Halo and Angel. His approach to art resembles the personality of the cat - playful, curious, unpredictable and quirky.

    Josue Mangrobang Jr.

    Philippines

    Josue Mangrobang Jr. poses a riddle on the meaning of the images he depicts on his canvases.

Mangrobang’s meticulous treatment of his artworks is as impressive as the message he imparts to the viewer : the invaluable contribution of education and the sacredness of personal space.

    Yeo Siak Goon

    Singapore

    Yeo Siak Goon 杨昔银 has an enduring fascination for the female form, whether decked in full costume regalia as in his Balinese dancers, or serenely bereft of clothing as in his sensual beachside nudes. Playing extensively with negative space, Siak Goon loves to conceal as much as he reveals, deliberately omitting key portions of his figures for one’s mind to connect limb to torso, and indulge in a game of visual peek-a-boo. Born in 1957, Malaysia, he presently lives and works in Singapo
