About the artist

Dia is a young, emerging artist whose practice lean towards public site-specific installations. She graduated with a Bachelor (Hons) in Fine Arts from LASALLE College of the Arts Singapore. Dia is known for her controversial public work The Golden Staircase in 2017.

“To redefine space into a space that provokes.”

Provokes in all sense that the banality of everyday life is mediated with something glaring as gold. Through the alchemy of transformation, the significance of gold acts as a commentary on resistance. Contributing to the discourse of what constitutes art in Singapore, Dia continues to challenge limitations with new thinking of art in public spaces. Sheas been actively showcasing her works since 2017, including her first solo exhibition titled “Upgraded” following her controversial golden flags public art installation , a collaboration with The Substation for Discipline the City campaign; a chapbook publication titled “A Public Square” by Singaporean author Adeline Chia.

Her practice stems into bridging the banality of lived spaces and the act of subversion using gold mediums.
