Principal: Warren Khong
Warren Khong situates his practice in the investigation of materiality in art to push the possibilities of representation in painting and drawing, as well as their reception. His primary research explores concepts of painting and its relation to surface and materiality – from selected metal surfaces to light, colour and reflection, he also explores spaces and site specificity as well as the intangible or immaterial, proposing for material as Idea. This interest in engaging in the intangibility of materials in art-making, as a way of challenging the ontological status of art and art objects allows for him to continue questioning notions of painting in art making.
Khong graduated with a Master of Arts, Fine Arts from Goldsmiths, University of London, U.K., in partnership with LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore. He has had six solo exhibitions thus far.
His works have been commissioned by La Maison du Whisky for their Artistrange and Karuizawa selected by La Maison du Whisky limited edition whisky labels as well as Velier for their Warren Khong and Warren Khong II range. He is a draughtsman in the Sol Lewitt foundation and worked on both Sol LeWitt wall drawings at the Marina Bay Sands, Singapore. His works have also been collected by the Singapore Art Museum, La Maison du Whisky, Velier and various other private collections.
