|Louis Lee Yu Jin, Opening of BA Graphic Communication Graduation|
Oddinary, NAFA, Singapore
It just happened, that I've been visiting Lasalle College of Arts for their exhibitions within The Lasalle Show during whole past year, but I never had occasion to come just across the street to NAFA - Nanyang Academy of Fine arts to see the works of their students. And here is my first occasion and Right Away it's BIG event - Bachelor of Arts (Honours) Graphic Communication Graduation Show 2013 - Oddinary Show of both NAFA and Loughborough University.On the eve of 10th June, students, colleagues, art lovers, designers, friends and family members gathered to greet the graduation of 33 students, whose works and ideas were presented at Gallery 1, NAFA Campus 1. Guest of Honour Steve Lawler - Kult3D opened the Show and wished all talents to keep continue trying new even small things everyday to keep development, inspiration and creative mood. The event gathered quite a lot of guests and designers were presenting their works proudly and ready to tell you their ideas and inspirations. There were lots of real advertising samples, that means, freshly graduates already joined working community of Singapore and actively building their portfolios and making career helping out to marketing and media.
Exhibition is up until 15th of June, at NAFA, 80 Bencoleen Street from 11 am to 8 pm. Please, go ahead and have a look, it's free. Who knows, maybe you will find there creator of your next promotion campaign. It's also worthy to see, where to design is going to nowadays. I don't dare to judge, as I'm more in arts and actually had to split my time between this event and Diploma in Art (Teaching) Graduation Show - En Route, that I'll be writing about in next post.
You can also get info about exhibition graduates exhibitions of other Faculties and programmes at NAFA web-site. Stay tuned and next graduation and exhibition called Connected is from Department of Design & Media Diploma Graduates and will be opened on the 24th of June, 6.30 pm at Galleries 1 & 2, Lim Hak Tai Gallery, NAFA Campus 1, 80 Bencoolen Street, running until 29th of June from 11 am to 7 pm. See you there!

I promise to pay more attention to NAFA happenings next school year and follow and attend their showcases more often to check, where Fine Arts development is driving to in Singapore.
In meantime, please read about my visits to Lasalle College of Arts and their showcases within The Lasalle Show, where Magic Bullet exhibition by graduates of Faculty of Fine Arts Masters Programme from Lasalle College of Arts at @ ICA Gallery 2, was my favorite and most impressive one! With Erika Norris and her smashed food media works, deeply disturbing your feeling and disgusting to the point.
