Thomas Yang | Local
100copies Bicycle Art is the brainchild of Singapore Creative Director Thomas Yang . An avid cyclist, he decided to combine two of his passions – bicycles and art – into 100copies. All of the products you see here are original designs created by him and are limited to, as the name suggests, 100 copies. Each piece of work will be watermarked, labeled with the title and edition number. As such, no two copies are ever completely identical.

Tan Jiahui/FABLE | Local
Fable is a multi-disciplinary boutique creative agency based in the Republic of Singapore. We observe, research, and conceive concept-driven ideas and intelligent designs that add value over noise for progressive brands and forward-thinking clients.
I believe that in the discerning and crowded age we live in, design should not only serve as a vehicle to aestheticize. Rather, it should help to craft experiences and communicate perception and thought. This has led the studio to work across various design disciplines, and gave us a chance to work with projects of different scales and purposes.

Kiyan Forootan | LA-based
Kiyan Forootan, a 3D Artist and motion designer. Kiyan Forootan creates transparent, ghost like figures – the typical sheet over a person like ghost – that move in fun, interesting ways, almost like they’re dancing or even walking in public. Forootan uses vibrant and fun colours rather than using white like myself, which makes them look inviting and not creepy like they would be if they were black or white. He uses CGI and motion design to create his work after taking videos of public spaces then creates them digitally which means you’re unable to see the reactions of the public and they are unable to interact with the work.
