MEET THE ARTIST
On 18 May from 7 to 9pm, beloved furniture and home accessories shop Fairprice Antique (#01-10 Tan Boon Liat Building, 315 Outram Road) will host a special meet-the-artist evening with South African textile artist and designer Deborah Mckellar of Talking Textiles. Inspired by Singapore’s exotic landscape and its juxtaposition of old and new, Deborah’s unique textile artworks are characterised by their bold colours, layers of stitch-work, remnants of fabric, silk-screened images and printed patterns. Guests will have the opportunity to chat with the artist, view her unique pieces, and enjoy canapés and wine – and of course, browse the store’s Chinese antique, vintage and reproduction furniture – all handpicked by owner Chantal Travers.
