Sol LeWitt’s (1928–2007) wall drawings redefined traditional concepts about discreet works of art. His innovation was two-fold: that the idea was the artwork, and that someone other than the artist could execute the work and it would still be a work by the artist. Wall drawings painstakingly follow Mr. LeWitt’s directions, and while a drawing may be installed many times, it may vary only slightly in size and never in format. Each drawing is accompanied by directions and a signed certificate that authenticates the work. The wall drawings are hand-painted and due to their scale, they require the execution and supervision of LeWitt-trained artists. The bold, colourful geometric design that comprises Wall Drawing #917, Arcs and Circles was drawn by two artists from the Lewitt Estate, Takeshi Arita and Gabriel Hurier, who worked with LeWitt for many years before he died. They were assisted by a select group of four local artists chosen through the Singapore Tyler Print Institute.
