Art Tour: Tags & Treats - Works by Vincent Leow (3D Art Fundamentals)

Temasek Design School

This is a retrospective exhibition on Vincent Leow's work spanning over two decades of art practice in various Artforms and media. He is a prolific local artist who continues to explore various societal issues.

'The title Tags and Treats refers both to pet identity tags, as well as military dog tags that are often used to identify the dead or wounded in war. The military dog tag is a reference to Leow’s inspiration for his new works, the Latin phrase Memento Mori (remember you will die), while the pet tag is a remembrance of Andy, his beloved late pet, which he transforms into a hybrid dog-manimage in his work. Leow, in his trademark whimsical style, uses the allegory of pets to take the severity out of the grim issue of mortality. The “treat” of a life well-lived is that of one’s legacy remembered and left behind. The exhibition, with its explorations, marks a milestone of a new direction and focus in Leow’s artistic practice.'
