Contemporary art lovers and basketball fans in Singapore are in for a treat this May as one of the hottest ultra-contemporary artists of today, Edgar Plans (Plans), visits Singapore for the very first time as part of the Game On Global Tour!
Featuring his signature sculptures inspired by legendary NBA players, along with limited-edition collectables in an exclusive collaboration with the NBA, the Game On Global Tour by Edgar Plans arrives in Singapore after tremendously successful exhibitions in Shanghai, Shen Zhen, and Hong Kong with immediate sold out art collectables.
Presented by international art creative agency Art with Love, in partnership with BLAXK by ActionCity, co-organised by global creative art studio Coexist (also known as CE Lab) and European contemporary art organisation MishaMade, from 25 May to 16 July 2023, Game On is a one-of-a-kind interactive experience at Funan featuring Plans’ expansive collection of sculptures and paintings. Bringing a concept similar to the K11 Art Mall in Hong Kong, Art with Love brings this novel “Museum-Retail” concept to Singapore, integrating the retail experience with internationally celebrated artist Plans’ art.
Plans is known globally for his graffiti-style artwork and contemporary take on socio-political issues through his medium of superheroes, married with a palette of vibrant colours and doodle aesthetics. A superstar in the global art scene in the last decade, Plans’ artwork has been showcased widely across Europe and Asia in various major museums, galleries and auction houses across the globe, highlighting his ever-increasing popularity and cultural relevancy.
In recent years, Plans’ works have become incredibly popular, marking a trend which has seen similar rises in popularity among collectors for collectables such as KAWS. In 2022, Plans’ work accrued USD 12 million in auction sales, across 175 lots; making for a 23% increase in the average price over the year.
For collectors, grab the opportunity to add Plans’ highly desirable work to your collection, as Plans introduces a limited-edition Michael Jordan-inspired collectable launching exclusively in Singapore, only available through BLAXK by ActionCity. Specially designed as a stand-out collectable within the Game On series paying tribute to the great basketball icon, this ‘Flyman 23’ sculpture by Plans is limited to only 400 pieces.
