LIFESTYLE ASIA | 7 Singapore artists to have on your radar in 2021

PAMEYLA CAMBE, Lifestyle Asia, February 10, 2021

It’s not often that artists can stake their claim to a particular medium, but Priyageetha Dia has succeeded in making golden surfaces synonymous with her practice since her 2017 installation, “The Golden Staircase”. The work, as well as its 2018 follow-up “Golden Flags”, responded to social issues like marginalisation, censorship and class politics. Indeed, there is grit under the gloss of Dia’s Midas touch. She has since delved deeper into her identity as a Brown woman, resulting in explorations in other mediums like latex works, wax sculptures and even CGI graphics. You can discover the latter at the ongoing group exhibition, An Exercise of Meaning in a Glitch Season, at the National Gallery. You can also purchase a collectible gold-lacquered tray and coaster set designed exclusively by Dia for Creative Unions.

Discover Priyageetha Dia’s work at National Gallery Singapore, 1 St Andrew’s Rd, Singapore 178957. Her Creative Unions creation is available for purchase at Grafunkt, #04-01 Funan Mall, 107 North Bridge Road, Singapore 179105.
