TOYSREVIL @ Band of Doodlers’ Seven Deadly SINs (Strength In Numbers) - Now On at Capitol Piazza (Basement 2) til September 25th

At the @bandofdoodlers' #SevenDeadlySINs #StrengthInNumbers Art Show!

Visiting the SEVEN DEADLY SINS (Strength In Numbers) exhibition at Capitol Piazza (recently renovated Captiol Theatre venue along Stamford Road, Singapore), one is surrounded and confronted by the 7 Deadly Sins that plague humanity, and you’d be in a minor state of art nirvana by the end of the experience!

Since blogging about it, I could not wait to check out the exhibition! Shown here are some snaps I had taken (MORE on Facebook), and my impressions, to share :)

Flanking the left and right of the gallery space, are seven deadly sins embodies by illustrations, split down the middle by a hand-drawn carpet; a “River of Doodlon”, if you will, leading to the Band of Doodlers table-“altar”, where a workshop was being held, the Saturday morning I visited the exhibition.

Ben AKA KedTwo (IG @kedtwo) was conducting a workshop sharing the basics of calligraphy, while Chief BODoodler Mas Shafreen AKA WantonDoodle was also on hand, busy filming the workshop himself - truly a DIY hands-on endeavour for this 3-years-strong collective. Inspiring.

Mas had shared that out of over 200 entries, 70 youth artists were picked for this showcase - each 10 were in turn mentored by 7 x youth mentors who each had a “Sin”, by which their artwork told “the story of how individual trespasses can get in the way of achieving our goals and aspirations.”

The 7 BOD Artist Mentors are:

- Candice Phang AKA Puffingmuffin (IG @puffingmuffin) for GREED,
- Raihana Abdul Rahim AKA “3EYEBODIES” (IG @araikreva) for LUST
- Pratama Eka Dharma AKA Pedmons for PRIDE (IG @pedmons)
- Teressa Ong (chopsticksroad.tumblr.com / IG @chopsticksroad) for SLOTH
- Nur Aida Sa'ad AKA yellowmushmellow (IG @yellowmushmellow) for GLUTTONY
- Edison Teo AKA Galactik Captain (IG galactikcaptain) for WRATH
- Epiphany Becomes An Obsession AKA EBAO (IG @ebao_art) for ENVY

If you haven’t noticed by now, the individual panels dividing the “SINs” were actually hand-doodled on the panel surface directly by the team corresponding with the “Sin”!

Featured below are just some of my select artworks which caught my eye, as snapped at the show and Instagrammed! (*FYI: These are not all full shots of the artwork! You’d have to go see them in person for yourselves :p)

Looking at the images on show, you’d wish some of them were made prints for sale, but unlike previous BOD shows, these were not the case here, as the one-of-one artwork were purely for “showcase” purposes. Folks who attended the show opening last Friday night (Aug 26th) had groovy BOD enamel pins and an abundance of badges to squirrel away with.

Powered by NOISE Singapore, this is a culmination of a month long “Doodle Fiesta” (1st - 31 July) with “Scen Deadly SINs” exhibiting thru September 25th, 2016. Folks interested to join the collective of White Space Bandits are to enquire via “bandits@bandofdoodlers.com”, and you can stay connected via their bandofdoodlers.com / www.facebook.com/bandofdoodlers / Instagram @bandofdoodlers and shop via shop.bandofdoodlers.com

"Ever since the DAME was first introduced, it dominated the battlefield. The massive diesel machines turned the tide of many an early battle. However, the enemy was quick to reciprocate with their newly designed, powerful UNTZ machines. This led to the large lumbering tin cans clashing on muddy fields for years before some engineer worth his weight in gold had the novel idea of trying to crack the enemy's plated shells with something different…”
