The work is the latest installation created as part of the Rolls-Royce art programme, which draws together the handcrafted elegance of Rolls-Royce motor cars with contemporary artists around the world. Internationally acclaimed artists including Ugo Rondinone, Michael Zavros, Regina Silveira and Angela Bulloch have featured in the programme, which will continue during Art Basel in Hong Kong where the marque will collaborate with esteemed artist Morgan Wong, once again in partnership with The Pearl Lam Galleries.

Rolón, who also goes by the name Dzine, has been recognized for his elaborately crafted paintings and ornate sculptures. His practice encompasses a range of media moving seamlessly between murals, sculpture, painting, and installation while he investigates pop culture, craft, ritual, beauty, spirituality, and identity and its relationship to art history, subculture, appropriation and the institution. His carefully crafted works, often inspired by a hybrid of cultures, are playfully situated between the contradictory worlds of conspicuous consumption and urban artifact.

Paul Harris, Asia Pacific Regional Director of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said, “Rolón is a critically acclaimed, international artist who, through his own background, appreciates craftsmanship and Bespoke, two tenets of our own Rolls-Royce business. His philosophy is grounded in identity and self-expression, and so we believe that his work will touch a cord with Rolls-Royce clients and enthusiasts alike. It is an honor that we are able to support the artist and his work at a time when Singapore has emerged as an internationally vibrant hub for contemporary art.”

Rolón/Dzine’s Mi Casa exhibition will present a follow-up to his highly successful installation My Mothers Living Room at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art which took the form of an exact reproduction of the artist’s child-hood living room from 1976 where his mother operated a bootleg salon. The exhibition will not only pay homage to this culture, but will also produce a shrine like presentation embracing the universal themes of the home. Pearl Lam Galleries is a driving force within Asia’s contemporary art scene. With over 20 years of experience exhibiting Asian and Western art and design, it is one of the leading and most established contemporary art galleries to be launched out of China.
