Raise Your Expectations at ARTBOX 2018: OASIS

Admission to Artbox 2018 is FREE.

Singapore’s largest pop-up creative market, Artbox Singapore, is back for Edition #2, and is expected to be bigger and better than last year’s! Spanning across 2 weekends, 25-27 May and 1-3 June 2018 at Bayfront Event Space (next to Marina Bay Sands – The Shoppes), you have no excuse not to check it out!

If you remember last year’s insane crowds (600,000 actual visitors), poor crowd control, long queues and disorganized walkways, this year we are looking at 700,000. Hopefully, with a nearly 3x bigger event space this time at 140,000 sq feet, we won’t be packed like sardines in the sweltering HEAT outdoors!

Why we are having higher expectations for Artbox 2018: OASIS – the organizers, INVADE x Artbox Thailand, seem to have made several improvements from 2017. Highlights include a massive entrance archway and media viewing deck constructed from Artbox’s iconic 20-foot shipping containers, quintessential Artbox elements like 6km-long fairy lights (time for IG!) + official light-up on 25 May, 7pm, creative art installations and > 400 booths of beauty, fashion, good and art from local & regional vendors!

For those who are unfamiliar with what Artbox has to offer (have you been living under a rock?! :P), it’s popular as a night-market style bazaar, or what Singaporeans would call an “atas pasar malam”. Definitely a weekend place to hang out and have fun with family and friends, because you can both feast (on innovative snacks) and shop (for unique knick-knacks, quirky designer bags, jewellery, crafts etc) while enjoying live music performances.

While we are salivating over what the other food bloggers are anticipating – goodies from Cereal Citizen, Say Chiizu, Cakerholic, Easy Eggs, Waan Cha, Be Frank, Saiko Takoyaki etc, we are also interested in what our cameras can makan:

Artbox 2017 – will we be more impressed this year?
A shot with Artbox’s signature fairy lights is mandatory. Have you thought about your outfit? ;)

If Instagram is your priority, you have to hope into Artbox’s unique foam pit decked with inflatable pool floats and psychedelic colours. The catch is that it’s not free to enter – you have to spend min $20 using any cashless payment method. OH WELL.

Important things to note before you head down:

Ok let’s face it. We spend a lot of time, money and energy on our face, but we tend to neglect our hair and scalp. Do you know that the skin on your scalp is the same as your face and body? So it requires the same care or even more attention to prevent problems such as dandruff and hair loss from happening.

Shopavision caught up with this sweet, fun loving lass who is only 22 years old and still a student. With the aim of promoting her online fashion store, she unleashed her creative juices while sipping on a cup of pomegranate juice and started to do parodies, imitating the fashion choices of celebrities, and capturing them in her own local way.
