OUR STORY


Addicted is an art gallery founded by an Australian "Mr" (Blair) and "Mrs" (Elena) living in the buzzing metropolis of Singapore.


Our passion for art was ignited in the late 90s when we purchased our very first piece, a collage, from a gallery located in Berry, a country town in New South Wales, Australia.


Fast forward a few years to 2002. It was during this year we were offered the opportunity to work in The Lion City, otherwise known as Singapore. This became the launching pad for more travel and living adventures which included calling London and New York home for a number of years.

During our travels we collected art pieces we loved - a practice we strongly encourage!


These pieces are a reflection and a reminder of where we have been, and of the fond memories made along the way.

In 2007 our voyage came full circle and we once again returned to the island nation where we continued our love affair with art.


Our passion rapidly became an addiction which lead to the birth of Addicted Art Gallery in 2015.


OUR ART


Our aim at Addicted Art Gallery is to connect you to art in a friendly, posh-less, non-highbrow kind of way.


Over the years we have developed a love for all different types of art and that is what we want Addicted Art Gallery to reflect. As a result, we have divided our art into three broad categories.


Our diverse portfolio includes; Contemporary Art, with a predominantly South East Asian focus; Urban and Pop Art, featuring well known and highly respected artists whose works will make you think, laugh and question; and lastly, there are our beautiful Vintage Posters and Art Deco inspired works which will transport you to a different time.

    The Space Cowboy: Step Right Up!

    22 Jan 2023 – 31 Mar 2023

    Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, step right up! Don't be shy! Come closer, you won't believe your eyes! Be prepared to indulge in the whimsical! Hurry, hurry, hurry! The Space Cowboy is a multidisciplinary artist from Byron Bay, Australia. A natural performer, he started presenting his unique skills at local markets at the age of eight and has since shocked and amazed audiences worldwide. His numerous television appearances, including ‘Officially Amazing’, ‘Outrageous Acts Of Science’ and AGT, have solidified his fame as a Sideshow Celebrity. One of the most innovative sword swallowers alive today, The Space Cowboy, performs an ever-expanding list of daring sideshow stunts. Currently, he holds 55 Guinness World Records, the most held by an Australian. As he follows in the footsteps of legends such as Houdini, his death-defying displays are history in the making. Recently exploding into the visual arts scene, his unique work has sold to collectors worldwide. “I paint with bold emotion and a high-speed wet overloaded brush style, using gravity to create the image. My art presents a monochrome duality to express a balance between life and living and death and dying with a daring glint.” Electrifying colours vibrate off the canvas, infused with undeniably vibrant energy. This is the work of The Space Cowboy. Bold gestural brushstrokes and splashes of acrylic paint met with sharp angular lines, the glaze of oil sticks and diffused fields of spray paints. Also, using his hand as his brush, he uses these mediums to synthesise the figurative and abstract into one. Imbued with a sense of motion, his intense, fast applications of paint channel his expressive nature as a performer. The dynamism of his work extends beyond the canvas. Displaced into new surreal environments, we witness The Space Cowboy manipulating form and colour, blurring the lines between every day and the absurd. Dark humour saturates his contemporary plays on classic mythologies, famed fairytales accented with eye-catching allusions to popular culture, explorations of anatomy and the foundations of life, and even works bordering on the autobiographical referencing his own experiences as a performer. In this signature styling, we see many subjects emerge before us. There is something primordial, elemental, speaking to each of us as these aesthetically exhilarating images illuminate the unseen connection between us all. They transform into visual metaphors for the greater universal lessons of our world, encouraging us to look deeper into ourselves. [Ambient Music: "White Mink", DJ - Dave Knox, 2011]

    Markus Klinko: I AM IMAN

    17 Dec 2022 – 28 Feb 2023

    Iman Abdulmajid (born 25 July 1955) is a Somali supermodel, actress, and entrepreneur. A muse of the designers Gianni Versace, Thierry Mugler, Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, and Yves Saint Laurent, she is also noted for her philanthropic work. She married rock musician David Bowie in 1992. Enter Markus Klinko... "It was the late spring of 2001 when I met Angelina Jolie's famous make-up artist, Paul Starr, on a shoot for 'Interview Magazine' in New York. He asked me if I had ever worked with Iman, another client of his, and suggested that he take my portfolio over to her house, just a few blocks down the street from my studio. "The next day, Iman called me on the phone and said she wanted to meet me and talk about a project. I was very excited to see the legendary supermodel in person and was anxious to hear her thoughts. When Iman arrived at the studio, I was shocked that she was even more stunning than in the photos. She was very complimentary of my work and explained that she had been working on her first book, 'I Am Iman'. She had contributions from virtually every great fashion photographer in the world, from Helmut Newton to Steven Meisel, but she wanted me to shoot the book's cover. I couldn't be more flattered, but I also felt the pressure to create something amazing with her. We scheduled the shoot for the following week," recalls Markus. The project became one of Markus's most significant photographer/star collaborations. About Markus Klinko Markus Klinko is an award-winning international fashion/celebrity photographer and director who has worked with many of today's most iconic film, music, and fashion stars. Markus has photographed the likes of Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, David Bowie, Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears, Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey, Kanye West, Anne Hathaway, Kate Winslet, Will Smith, Eva Mendes, Kim Kardashian, Naomi Campbell and Iman. His editorial clients include Vogue, GQ, Vanity Fair, Harper's Bazaar, and Interview magazine. Brands such as Lancôme, L'Oréal Paris, Nike, Hugo Boss, Anna Sui, Pepsi, Skyy Vodka, and Remy Martin have hired Markus to create advertising campaigns. Born in Switzerland of French, Italian, Jewish, and Hungarian descent, Markus spent his early years training to become a classical harp soloist. He studied at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique in Paris. Later, Markus signed an exclusive recording contract with EMI Classics and a management contract with Columbia Artists Management. He received the Grand Prix de Disque for his recording of French harp music with the orchestra of the Paris Opera Bastille. Markus also performed in recitals and as a featured soloist with symphony orchestras around the world. He was also regularly featured in Vogue Italia, Vanity Fair, GQ, The New York Times, Madame Figaro, Stereo Review and Ongaku no Tomo. After a hand injury, Markus became a fashion photographer and retired from his international concert and recording career. Isabella Blow discovered Markus' work at the London Sunday Times and commissioned cover stories from the emerging photographer. Around the same time, Ingrid Sischy at Interview magazine hired Markus for various shoots. Iman and David Bowie followed, giving the up and coming photographer a chance to photograph them for their respective book, "I Mm Iman" and album covers, "Heathen". From there, he created some of the most iconic album covers of our time, including Beyonce's "Dangerously in Love" and Mariah Carey's "The Emancipation of Mimi".

    Russell Young: Picture This

    30 Nov 2022 – 28 Feb 2023

    British-American Pop artist Russell Young is known for his compelling, larger-than-life silkscreen paintings appropriated from history and popular culture. Like pop artists past and present, Russell reinvents sometimes confronting images as a narrative on social, political and cultural dynamics. Russell is interested in secrets, those we keep, those we share, and those we are unwilling to confront. A rose petal might, upon a closer look, be riddled with holes. It is these holes Russell’s work illuminates. The holes of trauma, of carnal desire, of memory and history. Through them, he allows us to see vistas. In these vistas there are no expectations, no rules. He roams wherever he wishes, always looking for a space in which to be free, to experiment, to examine life and death. They are lands from which he resurrects dead dreams and crafts alternative ones. "His large silkscreen paintings of popular culture evidence a creative individual steeped in contemporary glamour, his work expressive of the shock and awe of fame, or those in close proximity to its glare and grit.” ~ John Finlay, Art Historian [Ambient Music: "Lust For Life", Iggy Pop, 1977]

In 2019, she was signed to her first gallery. “Art has been a part of my life and education for as long as I can remember. I never want to stop learning and developing the practice. “It’s amazing how painting can become such a part of your life. If I don’t have a painting in progress or art on my walls, I fee empty somehow. I look at the world differently. Seeing everything as a potential painting.” Samantha has participated in a number of art fairs and exhibitions across Asia and her works can be found in many private collections across the region. Enter the bright, bold world of Samantha Redfern.

    Secret Confessions: Formento x Pastor

    31 Oct 2022 – 28 Feb 2023

    "It's not a confession if no one reads it. It's just an unshared secret." ~ Colleen Hoover, Author The Formento x Pastor collaboration is a marvellous marriage between Terry Pastor's pop art and the romantic and otherworldly photography of Formento & Formento. Formento & Formento are known for their romantic and stylish photographs that explore themes of love, loss, longing and the burden of memory. Utilising staged scenes and desaturated colours, the eerie sensuality of their style reveals a fascination with fiction and reality and with mood and texture, where a sense of place figures prominently. Whether they are shooting in America, Europe, Cuba, Mexico, India or Japan, they blend fervent passion for photography and film with a lasting love for one another. Under the name Formento & Formento, Richeille Formento styles and art directs, while BJ Formento lights and photographs. The images are a mutual portrait - an exchange in which the artist's individualities blur, leaving traces on each other. Together the duo has an enthralling ability to absorb the spirit of a time and place, creating cinematic photographs with a vision that references the past but remains contemporary and highly original. BJ was born in Hawaii and grew up in the Philippines. After attending the Academy of Arts University of California, he moved to New York, training his eye by working with esteemed photographers such as Richard Avedon, Duane Michals, Mary Ellen Mark and Annie Leibovitz. London born Richeille graduated with honours from Central St. Martins College of Art before working as an art director and designer. In 2005, BJ and Richeille met while working together in South Beach, Miami. Formento & Formento's work has been exhibited worldwide and is in permanent collections of International Center of Photography, Moscow Museum of Arts, Currier Museum, Boca Raton Museum, Bruce Museum, Lewben Museum and Musee Des Art Decoratif Paris. They have published "Circumstance: America Down on Bruised Knees" by YK Books (2009) as well as a short film "The Voyage" shown at Cannes Film Festival 2016. Terry Pastor is an artist and printmaker. He is best known for his iconic album artwork for David Bowie's "Hunky Dory" and "Ziggy Stardust". While these albums usually grab the headlines, in reality, this work is just one element of Terry's career. His credits include album covers for the Beach Boys, Alex Harvey, The Sweet, Carl Palmer, Soft Machine and many other artists. Terry's credits also include book covers for bestselling authors Arthur C Clark, Jeffrey Archer, Mickey Spillane, Colleen McCullough, Len Deighton, Brian Aldiss, Michael Crichton, Ed McBain and Leslie Thomas. Over the years, Terry's work has won him many accolades, including two prestigious Art Director of America awards and a Playboy magazine award. His paintings feature in private collections worldwide, including Roman Polanski and Roman Ford Coppola. Over the past ten years, Terry has worked mainly using digital media.

    Markus Klinko: Enchanté

    07 Nov 2022 – 28 Feb 2023

    Markus Klinko is an award-winning international fashion/celebrity photographer and director who has worked with many of today's most iconic film, music and fashion stars. "Markus' work has helped me feel free and confident to express my 'real self' and perform in front of the camera." ~ Soo Yeon Lee Born on May 22, 1984, in Busan (South Korea), Soo Yeon Lee is an international ping-pong champion, model, actress and entrepreneur. She was also voted "sexiest sportswoman on the planet" by American Playboy. After winning dozens of tournaments, including the US Open in table tennis in 2007, she moved to Hollywood to study Physical Education at UCLA. She was soon "scouted" by the fashion industry and became a model and actress, but she never gave up on her first passion - ping pong. Soo merged all her passions into one and became an ambassador for the Spin Club, whose first establishment was opened by Susan Sarandon in New York and which offers "social ping-pong". "Ping-pong is a sport where you can really have fun, and play against anyone, regardless of gender or age, or look, and you can also keep your high talents and long dresses... Everyone plays it, from Obama to Justin Bieber and NBA players. It's really unifying and quite sexy because of its lightness." Enter Markus Klinko... "I knew his work before I met him and thought he was an amazing photographer and artist. When David Swaelens-Kane asked me to go on vacation in Los Angeles he also asked whether I was interested in appearing in French Playboy. My first question was: 'Who will be the photographer?' When he mentioned Markus, I had no hesitation in saying yes. I've never done a revealing photoshoot like this. I knew I could trust his beautifully powerful and artistic imagery. He was amazing to work with and made me feel very comfortable being myself. He was extremely well prepared and shared his vision of the character he wanted me to play. It was very different from what I had planned, but I really liked the concept and had a lot of fun during the filming. "He is obviously an incredible visionary. His work is solid, creative, and functional and captures the authenticity of his subject's life. I have been a huge fan of his work and admire the awesome images he has captured of great people, including David Bowie and Beyoncé, to name a few. "Markus' work has helped me feel free and confident to express my 'real self' and perform in front of the camera. Everyone worked hard and with passion, and we all enjoyed working together. It was such a great team. The filming location was the home of producer James Goldstein. I did a lot of photoshoots and films in his house, so I felt a bit at home." [Ambient Music: Everything (Is Never Quite Enough), Wasis Diop, 1998]

    04 Jan 2023 – 28 Feb 2023

    Markus Klinko is an award-winning international fashion / celebrity photographer and director who has worked with many of today's most iconic film, music and fashion stars. "The body is meant to be seen, not all covered up.” - Marilyn Monroe Nude art photography has long been a source of intrigue and inspiration for many.

Nude photography captures moments of beauty, intimacy, vulnerability and drama in ways beyond any other artistic medium. It captivates viewers with its raw beauty and power. Enter celebrity and fashion photographer Markus Klinko. Markus' body of work extends beyond the fashion world and includes projects focused on nude photography. His works are characterised by bold colours, unique angles and creative lighting to capture various moods and emotions.

From a burlesque dancer to an adult film star, Markus has captured celebrities and models at their most powerful - exposed and uncensored. [Ambient Music: "Fever" by Peggy Lee, 1958]

    Markus Klinko: Iconic

    01 Sep 2022 – 28 Feb 2023

    Markus Klinko's work is as familiar as Britney's dance moves. His images have defined significant moments in pop culture. Remember Beyoncé in that bejewelled top, throwing diva shapes on the album cover for Dangerously in Love? That's him. So if you're the photographer who has captured some of the world's biggest celebrities, from Bowie to Billie, which of your images would you choose? "Markus Klinko: Iconic" showcases one image, chosen by Markus, for every year from 2000 to 2021. "In the last 10 to 15 years, the art world of photography had a very strong focus on the '60s and '70s, but I wasn't a photographer then. During lockdown in 2020, I could feel this nostalgia emerge for anything 2000, which has been my signature because that's where some of my most well-known work was created. Now it's becoming fashionable." His luminous portraits document the larger-than-life icons of 21st-century pop culture. Taken over 21 years, the images comprise a chronological archive of the era's most creative, diverse and compelling celebrities. "When photographing an artist, I always desire to create a work that truly defines them and can serve as a milestone in pop culture history. Those are ambitious and lofty goals, but it is what I am thinking about when I pick up my camera." ~ Markus Klinko Get ready to awaken your nostalgia as we return to the noughties (2000-09), the teenies (2013-19), the early twenties (2020 - 21) and the inbetweenies (2010-12) to celebrate 21 years of iconic photography by Markus Klinko.
