About the event
Squat, tiptoe, crawl, observe, and stare — these are all the things the artist invites you to do at 'In The Nature Of Things'.
The artist invites you to step into his mind's studio — nature. You are invited to watch Jacky paint and be a part of nature.
Nature is beautiful and everyone has their own way of enjoying it. While the artist believes that it is special to admire photos, paintings & other media of Nature, it is not quite the same as appreciating it in real life. Even Singapore as the beautiful Garden City which we have all grown to love is a tamer manicured version. In its inherent form, Nature is often overpowering. While my art show cannot replicate that same energy, the compact layout aims to reflect that overwhelming feeling visually. It may be uncomfortable but I hope to present a very different gallery experience where visitors are invited to grapple with the painted kaleidoscope of colours surrounding them.
A non-traditional exhibition where Jacky shows off a large body of work in a more organic fashion. Step into a display studio where Jacky is able to layout his paintings & work upon them. Jacky’s paints and brushes can be laid out for his easy access, really make the space feel like a professional studio where he can work and visitors can get an intimate look at his process and methodology.
Jacky Mak (b. 1994) is a Singapore-based artist who specialises in large vibrant murals and paintings. Most known for his massive murals of vivid landscape scenes and animal portraits, he is deeply inspired by the Impressionists and hopes to do them justice with his exploration of light, movement and expression. First picking up a paintbrush about 10 years ago, Jacky has since produced an expansive body of both commissioned and personal paintings, and is constantly looking for bigger walls to paint upon to share how he sees the world. With a degree in landscape architecture, he has also dabbled in fields such as art direction in the film industry, theatre set design & illustration. In his free time, Jacky loves running, kayaking, and walking as far as he possibly can while gaining further insight into Mother Nature.
