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 Art of Nick Walker

    30 Oct 2022 – 31 Jan 2023

    Do you think the British graffiti art scene is basically about Banksy, and then the rest? Think again. Indeed, the whole Bristol underground scene from which the latter originated might not have been quite as strong without the presence of Nick Walker. Born in 1969, Nick emerged from the infamous and groundbreaking Bristol graffiti scene of the early 1980s. As a forerunner of the British graffiti phenomenon, Nick’s work has become a blueprint for hundreds of emerging artists. His work is constantly evolving and remains innovative, modern and thought-provoking. Nick mastered his art using the freedom of spray cans with the addition of very controlled and intricate stencilling. He also likes to add an element of humour or irony to some paintings and to add a little light relief to the walls. One of Nick's signature images is that of a gentleman in a bowler hat, aka The Vandal. In the words of the artist: "I first came up with The Vandal concept back in 2005. I was walking through London and I saw one of those massive golfing umbrellas on the ground. On second glance I saw that there was someone underneath it lighting up a pipe. This is how the Vandal Triptych print came about, it stuck in my head and it got me thinking that umbrellas act as the perfect smoke screen for pretty much anything, especially graffiti. The second decoy is the outfit, someone dressed as a quintessential Englishman donning a bowler hat is not the kind of person you would expect to be doing graffiti.” The Vandal came to life in a painting called 'The Morning After', a painting that depicted the artist after a night, 'painting the town red', observing the city behind him with the satisfaction of a job well done. The concept of 'The Morning After' happened in cities across the world, from London to Agra to Paris, and The Vandal went on to feature in a Black Eyed Peas video. "Having heard the term 'paint the town red' The Vandal decided he has one mission, take it to the extreme and paint in every colour imaginable, not just the town - the world!” Nick has been known to tackle political themes in his artwork as well. His famous Le Corancan (2009) in Paris featured veiled women lifting their skirts to reveal stockings whilst they danced the cancan. It was a commentary on President Sarkozy's plan to ban the burqa in France. Sellout shows in LA and London in 2008 saw collectors lining up for more than a day to be the first to get their hands on Walker's latest print edition. The rest, as they say, is history. "Painting is a form of escapism for me and if my work allows the spectator to do the same thing, then I've achieved more than I set out to do." ~ Nick Walker [Ambient Music: "The Passenger" by Iggy Pop, 1977]

    Secret Confessions: Formento x Pastor

    31 Oct 2022 – 31 Jan 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.

    Small But Mighty!

    04 Nov 2022 – 28 Feb 2023

    Apparently, the saying “big things come in small packages” has nothing to do with wearing tight pants. Humour us as we share some of our small but mighty art pieces. “Though she be but little she is fierce.” ~ William Shakespeare When decorating your home, you may be constrained by space. And with new apartment sizes shrinking, it’s more important than ever to make the most of every inch. Even with limited space, you can still hang impactful art on your walls. Creating a home that feels welcoming is a great way to exude a sense of calm and serenity. Including artwork in your space can help forge this atmosphere and bring about a sense of belonging; unless your art of choice is from the axe-murdery genre, then the piece becomes a conversation starter or an Olympic athlete maker as your guests run screaming from your home. No judgement here. So what do you do to make your space feel complete and alive? Express yourself with artwork that speaks to your personality. “Small” is in the eye of the beholder, so we’re keeping our picks under 65cm. Enjoy!

    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]

    Markus Klinko: Britney Spears, In The Zone

    18 Aug 2022 – 31 Oct 2022

    Markus Klinko is a fashion and celebrity photographer known for his high-profile celebrity shoots. In 2004, he photographed pop superstar Britney Spears. Markus' photos immortalised her as the stunning force of nature that she has become. In these shots, she is a goddess, a beautiful creature out of mythology. "Welcome to The Onyx Hotel. Once you check-in, you can't check-out!" The photo session with Britney was for a campaign to promote her Onyx Hotel Tour, in conjunction with the release of the pop star's album, In The Zone. The Onyx Hotel Tour was the fifth concert tour by the American entertainer. The tour was divided into seven segments: 'Check-In', 'Mystic Lounge', 'Mystic Garden', 'The Onyx Zone', 'Security Cameras', 'Club' and the 'Encore'. 'Check-In' displayed performances with dance and advanced in the hotel theme. 'Mystic Lounge' featured an homage to Cabaret and other musicals, while remixing some of Britney's early hits. 'Mystic Garden' displayed a jungle-inspired stage. 'The Onyx Zone' displayed a ballad performance with acrobats. 'Security Cameras' was the raciest part of the show, with Britney and her dancers emulating different sexual practices. 'Club' displayed a performance with urban influences. The 'Encore' consisted of a system malfunction interlude with Britney performing in a red ensemble. Images from the photoshoot with Markus were used in the Concert Tour Programme. Britney had clear ideas of what she wanted - a dark, magical world with inspirations including enchanted gardens, jazz clubs, ice castles and haunted bedrooms. “Britney was just so personable and she had a lot of the ideas for the images. It was one of the loveliest experiences,” commented Markus. At the time, Britney sought a break from her good-girl image. Markus' photos of the star immortalised her as the stunning force of nature that she has become. In these shots, she is a goddess, a beautiful creature out of mythology. The shoot was incredibly successful. Markus' images were used to promote The Onyx Hotel Tour and on Britney's album cover for the universally acclaimed song 'Everytime'. Images from the shoot were later used for numerous magazine covers, such as Vanity Fair. Beauty giant Elizabeth Arden also licensed pictures and used them to advertise two of Britney's fragrances - Fantasy and Midnight Fantasy. It was the highest-grossing merchandising campaign for a female pop star at the time - and one of Markus' most successful shoots. “Britney would be the hottest woman I have ever photographed, she was super sexy. At the time, she was just unbelievable – so natural and so sweet.” - Markus Klinko Welcome to Britney Spears, In The Zone!

    Markus Klinko: Iconic

    01 Sep 2022 – 30 Nov 2022

    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.

    Exposed: Collector Editions

    01 Oct 2022 – 31 Dec 2022

    Sarah J. & Sally A. Edwards are British twin sisters who work as Photographer and Art Director, respectively. Raised in rural England and Scotland, they spent much of their childhood and art school years secretly relying on a crackling radio, untuned T.V.s, passed around mixtapes and discovering international magazines – to inform themselves culturally. The sisters created BLAG during art college, using the wages they made from their Saturday job. They grew it to become an international glossy, choosing up-and-comers for covers and features ahead of the curve. Known for in-depth, down-to-earth editorial content leaning into humor and kindness, they unveil an empathetical viewpoint not often seen. Sarah and Sally believe critical ingredients for making striking images are: humour, storytelling, respect, down-to-earth scene setting, and specifically created soundtracks. The sisters’ ethos is that each shoot portrays subjects naturally, taking an organic approach with zero to little in the way of retouching and essential lighting only. Enter the world of Sarah J. & Sally A. Edwards. [Ambient Music: "So Far To Go" by J. Dilla, 2006]
