'On Point!' is Element Art Space’s first exhibition of illustration, which explores the idea of illustration as fine art. Illustrators are often dismissed from the fine art world because their works are usually used in publications such as magazines and for commercial products such calendars, wrapping and greeting cards. In reality, however, illustrators are artists, but not all artists are illustrators—illustrators are fine artists who specialise in illustration.

Showcasing three Singaporean illustrators are Natalie Kwee, Teresa Lim and Mark Wee, who use pens and needles for their works, 'On Point!' pays homage to the Singapore daily lifie re-imagined through each artist's eyes. From HDB flats to private rooms, from idealistic family life to the actual reality today, the works presented here will take you to an alternative universe full of whimsy yet can be marginally misanthropic realities that, we hate to admit, we live in.
