Painthead Asia Art Show To be Featured at this Year’s Art of Speed Exhibition
Art of Speed, Malaysia’s very own homegrown Ol-Skool & Kustom Kulture event will be taking things up another notch this year with the introduction of PAINTHEAD ASIA – a regional group art show which will see renowned artistes from around the region share a single platform to showcase their works of art.
The exhibition, which will be the first of its kind in Asia, will also foster further collaborations among local and also international artistes, such as Bacon Decoration “Jun” from Japan, Arkiv Vilmansa & Fahmi Freeflow from Indonesia, Mr. Pinman & Twocs Itthipong from Thailand, Mark SBTG & Feroze McLeod from Singapore and lastly representing from Malaysia are Adrian Nunis “Affa Project” & Ezudean Ishak “Rolling Ink”.
Sponsored by Japanese helmet brand Beetle Helmet, every helmet that is designed by the aforementioned artistes will be on sale via ‘Silent Auction’ and according to organisers, 100% of the proceeds will be channelled to the artiste.
That said, this is the best time for you to come and have a closer look at the international artistes, and also to support our local talents who will be strutting their stuff at PAINTHEAD ASIA.
