2. Calder on Paper
The Omer Tiroche Gallery in London will present the "Calder on Paper", a gouache on paper collection by American artist Alexander Calder, who us celebrated for his delicately balanced systems of discs and wires put to movement by air, aka ‘mobiles’. Calder continues to develop his own visual language through his work with gouache that features a mix between geometric forms with more earthly subjects. The collection on display is part of the private collection of Micky Tiroche, the father of the gallerist, Omer Tiroche. Art Stage Singapore 2018 will show two mobiles from Calder, Stabile (1968) and The Red Crescent (1969).

With more than a 50 year career span, Botero has experimented with various media and his artworks can be found in exhibitions across the world. For ART STAGE Singapore 2018, Botero’s son, Fernando Botero Jr., will give a talk on the life and art of the senior Botero.
