I have been commisioned to create two artworks as wall murals for the MADURO Jazz Club at the Sofitel Singapore.
My Art Statement for this project: “JAZZSCAPE” and “SONIC CANVAS” are two immersive murals, breathing the soul of MADURO, a space where rhythm and melody intertwine to create an atmosphere that resonates with the spirit of jazz. As the artist behind this creation, I sought to encapsulate the dynamic energy and improvisational spirit that defines the genre, translating it onto the walls of MADURO.
The murals unfold like a musical composition, with each stroke representing a note, each color echoing a tone, and the overall composition show the soul of jazz. The visual narrative is a celebration of the varied instruments that come together to create the magic of jazz. The central motif of the mural are stylized jazz silhouettes, where instruments and musicians merge seamlessly, symbolizing the collaborative and interconnected nature of jazz.
The figures are dynamic and fluid, capturing the essence of improvisation and the spontaneity that defines jazz performances. Through the vibrant colors and bold shapes, I aimed to convey the vivacity and rhythm inherent in this musical genre. Incorporating iconic jazz instruments such as saxophones, trumpets, and pianos, the mural pays homage to the roots of jazz while also embracing its timelessness.
The interplay of abstract elements and figurative representations creates a visual rhythm that mirrors the syncopated beats and syncopated lives of jazz musicians. “JAZZSCAPE” and “SONIC CANVAS” are more than just murals; it’s a living testament to jazz. It invites the audience to explore the interconnectedness of artistic expression, uniting the realms of visual and auditory stimulation. As the mural adorns the walls of MADURO, it serves as a visual anthem, encapsulating the very heart and soul of the jazz experience—bold, vibrant, and timeless.
