Artist Statement

This artwork takes a leaf from old saying that “The way to a person’s heart is through his stomach.” Food and love are inexorably linked because food is comfort and food is sensually intimate. In courtship, food is used a way to impress and woo a potential mate in the dating game. It is a decadent seduction.

Artist Statement

“Diamonds are a girl’s best friend” portrays the most famous scene from the 2001 film Moulin Rouge!, where the main character Satine sings and seduces her many admirers, when obviously her love was for the gems she wears given by her suitors. This artwork depicts society’s prevalent practice of equating love and strength of a relationship with the value of expensive gifts.

Artist Statement

This artwork depicts a quote from Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest where Lady Bracknell tries to trap her daughter’s suitor in an eligibility interview. Oscar Wilde’s satirical play pokes fun at the love in the uppity Victorian era; its hilarious bumpy road to marital bliss, the witty aphorisms, utter nonsense and preposterous plots. Nonetheless in modern courtship, like Oscar Wilde’s play, the course of true love may not run smoothly, but it does end happily.

Artist Statement

“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet” represents Shakespeare’s most iconic scene from Romeo and Juliet, whereby Juliet tells Romeo that a name is an artificial and meaningless

convention, and that she loves the person, not his family name. Logical though this well-  meaning advice, modern day courtships remain prejudiced where there is presumption that a person’s character is defined by their family background.

Artist Statement

Garden of Pain- Garden of pain portrays a repetitive portrait of a male who looks up to the sky and waiting for what they have now to be over. ‘Beauty is Pain’, its a phrase we all have to know as beauty comes at a really high cost, high risk and one have to endure the pain to look perfect. Nowadays, even men tends to look beautiful, going through endless amounts of plastic surgery to appear confident in public. Men may be way more extreme and different to women, because its really rare to hear a woman goes surgery to look like a man, but vice versa, countless. The pink cactus conveys  pain. But when one really put oneself into what they love, they tend to see everything in a rose-tinted glass.

God Bless the Vegan- The painting depicts two significant character, in a dominant green filter and wig, holding vegetables as they are supporting vegetarian life. But contrary to their belief, animals cruelty is one of the foremost reason why they choose to practice vegan diet. However they wear animal skin products which can be seen as a support to the fur and skin industry for centuries. The red mirage-like surrounding the van is portrayed like a gaseous smell of blood which bothers the vegetarian people.

Artist Statement

The Collector – The Collector is a mixture of fantasy and reality which depicts Nik M Shazmie’s personal interpretation of a group of people who collects thing ranged from antiques collectors who fancies limited edition the Beatles record to avid art collectors worldwide. He acknowledge that his interest spurred from a few American TV series such as Auction Hunters and Storage Wars. The background portray a confined space of the collector storage, hiding her most priceless treasure and possessions. The monstrous looking flying trap plants represents his deadliest catch so far, and it may be only a few of them is in the big storage. And the other plants in background are kept away for a few moment, waiting for them to grow and be ready for action for value appraisal.
