White Space Art was created in connection with the Heng Artland Gallery of Singapore to discover and promote new artists. Their mission is to identify and introduce artists that stand out during the period of time of their artworks. In addition, they would like to bring out established and successful artists in Chinese contemporary art who have built relationships with the White Space Art. Their relationship was built on over thirty years of experience with art, working with other artists before the Chinese economy and art markets opened up. White Space Art Asia believed that all arts must have aesthetic value and meaning. There are purposes for artists to use different structures– from using lines, shapes, color, detail of the paintbrush, they all have intentions from the artists to use those to tell us a story. The artists’ art must have some sort of philosophy that aspires them to speak something real and human that engages our intellect and touches our heart. Arts such as contemporary are not only about a particular style but also the understanding of today’s burning issues, angst, and obsessions. They seek artists who have used their art to interpret and explain the world around them and the important questions of the times. Artists such as Alejandro Contreras Moiraghi and Berit as well as Juliana Lima have their artwork here.
