IDOLiSM: Ecdysis • Moss X McQueen

"Ecdysis • Moss x McQueen" is a new painting for the art exhibition IDOLiSM presented by A Curious Teepee and OIC Singapore.

The title "Ecdysis" is about change. Our skin changes every month, our bodies changes every day and our world changes every second. The key message of Ecdysis is about stripping of the mask...revealing our true self. Better, stronger and unique.

Medium: Acrylic and gouache on unprimed canvas (24x30 inches)

IDOLiSM: A Curious Teepee X OIC
Opening Launch: Thursday 5th May 2011, 7.30pm to 9.30pm

A tweed jacket, lobster claw heels, four little white stitches, a red gown…Iconography that has been etched into our psyche wittingly (and unwittingly) through the delirious world of fashion.

For this exhibition, illustrators draw inspiration from these objects of desire and their inventors, creating original artworks in the process. Using different mediums, participating artists include Mindflyer, Mr B, Fleecircus, Sokkuan, Cherie The Mrr, Eeshaun, AnnGee, SanSan, Noreen, Fei, Miel, Annie Tan, Twisstii and Mriz Sidah just to name a few. With varying backgrounds and styles, from political cartoons, to abstract surrealism, several take their first foray into fashion as subject matter.

With the inaugural Singapore Men’s Fashion Week just past and the upcoming Audi Fashion Festival this May, A Curious Teepee and OIC aim to convey another side of fashion, as seen through the eyes and hands of an artist.

All artworks are on display and available for sale till Sunday 22nd May at A Curious Teepee, from 12pm to 9pm daily.
