• PHIL AKASHI IN THE COLLECTION OF THE ROYAL FAMILY OF MALAYSIA

    posted by Phil Akashi Studio on Monday, October 17, 2016

    The 10th edition of  Art Expo Malaysia  took place from October 20 – 23, at Matrade Exhibition and Convention Centre (MECC), Kuala Lumpur, featuring 60 established and reputable art galleries and groups from 30 countries, exhibiting 2,000 pieces of artworks (including paintings, sculptures, installation, photography) of various style, expression and medium, under one roof.

     

    Phil Akashi has been selected to represent Belgium (Booth E4) in the Embassy Zone, which sees participation from 13 Embassies, i.e. Argentine, Belgium, Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, France, Iran, Italy, Mexico, Mongolia, Philippines, Romania, Russia (debut appearance). Each Embassy proudly represents one selected solo artist from its country.

     

    Currently the longest-running art fair in South-East Asia, Art Expo Malaysia is probably the most public-friendly art fair in the world. The Malaysia bandwagon, the largest delegation, will have a good number of reputable exhibitors as well as new players in the local art scene. These galleries will represent more than 100 local artists, a great mix of pioneer artists, superstars, established and emerging young artists.

     

    Exhibitors’ lineup this year includes the usual past exhibitors and supporters such as Henry Butcher Art Auctioneers, Masterpiece Auction, Bank Negara Malaysia Museum & Art Gallery, National Visual Arts Gallery Malaysia, Galeri Prima (NSTP), A2 Gallery, Art WeMe Contemporary Gallery, City Art Gallery, G13 Gallery, Galleria GermAsia, HOM Art Trans, Jeth Art Gallery, Nadine Fine Art, Pelita Hati Gallery Of Art, Pin Wei Zhai Art Gallery, Segaris Art Center, Taksu, TJ Fine Art, and Yahong Art Gallery.

     

    Some of these galleries also represent foreign artists as well; both the art auction houses Henry Butcher and Masterpiece will showcase works by Southeast Asian artists or highlight pieces of the coming auctions. In addition, there will be the National Exhibition of China, presented by the Ministry of Culture China, that showcases Chinese contemporary ink artists. 

     

    The Crown Prince and Crown Princess of Perlis, DYTM Tuanku Syed Faizuddin Putra ibni Tuanku Syed Sirajuddin Jamalullail, and DYTM Tuanku Hajjah Lailatul Shahreen Akashah Khalil, have acquired an artwork of Phil Akashi for their prestigious collection in the Royal Palace.
