SO Sofitel Singapore is this year’s venue partner for Voilah! France Singapore Festival 2019 and the property is hosting various events at the hotel.

Jisbar Exhibition
4 October – 17 November 2019 | All Day | Level 1 at SO Sofitel Singapore | Free Entry

In partnership with Miaja Art Collections, SO/ Sofitel Singapore presents a spectacular display of original artworks by French artist Jisbar Planche. Jisbar has specially curated 4 unique pieces inspired by the late Karl Lagerfeld. The fine artworks will be on display and available for purchase between 4 October – 17 November 2019 at the front lobby area and La BiblioteK, a library curated by Karl Lagerfeld for the hotel.

Born in 1989, Jisbar has circulated his art around Paris for 10 years. His art deals with the front of pop culture references. His creations update our saturated society with media and pop references, which he takes and interprets with his own unique twist. Fashion, music, lifestyle, the freestyle mind and other expressions found in the streets are the elements which build his style.

Jisbar likes to say that each of his works represent moments of life, like a memory which is made forever in a photo album. This sincerity pushes the spectator to concentrate on every single detail in order to understand the entirety of its meaning. Jisbar paints impulsively and applies himself to demonstrate that creative spontaneity which allows him to create stories that animate his daily life.
