Singapore To Hold First Large-scale Wildlife Art Exhibition

By  |  0 Comments

Held in Singapore from November 6 to 15 at Orchard Gateway, the wildlife art exhibition will feature a total of over 200 pieces of art from around the world.

In the wake of the current haze crisis, World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Singapore and WildAid Shark Savers will showcase a 10-day public exhibition at Orchard Gateway, featuring more than 200 paintings, photography and sculptures from 36 top wildlife artists from 13 countries. 18 artists will be flying to Singapore for the event, including award-winning British artist Laura Quinn, British wildlife photographer Joseph Anthony and Italian wildlife artist Stefano Zagaglia.

The art exhibition aims to bring Singaporeans closer to wildlife, emphasising the need to protect at-risk species. According to the WWF, species populations worldwide have declined by 52% over the last 40 years due to climate change, habitat loss due to deforestation and a range of other human and developmental activities.

On the very last day of the exhibition (November 15), an art auction will also be held at IndoChine Saint Ma. The target is to raise funds for WWF-Singapore and WildAid Shark Savers, from both the art auction and public art sale.
