Remembering december.

This is the first post for a very productive month ahead. November was an alright month of still discovering new feelings and experiencing a new environment of work( a day job which fuck me up big time ) and of course friendship. I simply nailed down and have begin planning for what is going to happen next for myself and the shape of things to come, be it work wise, and for myself to improve.
Again, there is no time for complaints, bitching and gossips for me to entertain for now.

If you are going to ask how the SIAF2009 at the Expo was, dont bother, it is just a waste of time as the main organizers are just really really damn bad on logistics and organizing such show. But My shout outs goes to Scope for inviting me, Jaba, Mimer, Esok, Fyrool, Tracy and the rest whom i wish i have the time during the weekend to actually hangout and talk to. Im glad november is over.

Ive yet to get more details on the 26th december show, and if that happens, for sure you guys will get to taste of whats cooking for next year. I'll give more details and updates once i have something regarding this show. but here's something to checkout for now....

These darlings are ready to go. at SGD100.00 each and its ink on a 10" round canvas
mail me for more details.

Hello . It's been awhile. The weekend was great and i had the chance to work with ZERO from the notorious 'ARTVSTS' collective. This one is for the President's Young Talent Inside Out party. The party went good and booze is everywhere in the house.
Great music, great company, great night. Thanks to Julian & Jamie of the Singapore Art Museum for hosting the show and the wicked people from Broadband Agency Asia for hooking us up and throwing a one hell of a party...Toast!

Happy Birthday ZERO..

The Best Part

Zero, the birthday boy and a great guy to work with.

This is Rina from My Loot (check out her cool blogshop, she is pretty and she took most of the pictures in this post.

Me & Zero were both colleagues of the late "Farhan Grillz" and this whole piece is dedicated to him.. Hang in there brother, we will all join you someday. rest in peace bro.

The weather here is incredibly rediculous and wierd. The humidity is making everyone i know having wierd ulcers and having headaches and tummy aches. Hope it will be cooler sooner.

I'm sooo getting rid of the nice things about what i've been doing, it's time to go bad.. The cute little kids and their friends have long left the building going around fucking midgets and bicycle thieves for now..Let me introduce to you.. the bad kids who spits in yr face,not in your mouth...bitch.

Thats all for now, till i manage to steal or rob someone for a camera to take more shots and pictures of me playing with the new kids.. zoom into the shoes'hint hint'.. Till next time, have a great week ahead.

Rest In Peace 'Farhan (oscar,grillz)'

In Hiatus.

I totally forgot about the existence of this blog, and i guess it has not been active since last year since i don't really understand or make an effort to learn how this blogging thing works. Anyways, i've decided on updating about my life and current activities which has been going on and hopefully this time round i will try to have something to talk about or a new work to show every week. Currently i just woke up from the longest break i ever had since. Do stick around this time round, i think i am going to make this blog as interesting as before? or the least to have people browsing through my latest works or bitch about something.

2009, in summary.
Fair enough, for now i am going to post pictures on what have been happening or what i have been doing throughout the year, it have been a crazy year for me, too much drama and it's been a tough one on me and everyone else i guess. Although the year has not ended yet, but i think it's nice for me to talk or have nice and ugly things to show you guys.
The year kicked off fine for me as in the whole of january was pretty much occupied with the first KILAS showcase/exhibit for 2009. I was the first artist for DBL O 'ART SPACE' which have a strong following and they are cool enough to give a platform for street artists to showcase their works and party like when you're 18 again!

The whole 'ART SPACE' installation lasted for like 6 awesome months showcasing 6 different artists including SCOPE ONE, ONE TWO DELTA, ANTZ, SPEAKCRYPTIC & MIMER. I believe they are going to do it again next year. 
This Magazine interview was done in conjunction with the event and it was for 'Home Concepts Magazine's february issue.

    ... and yes, i did the ladies restroom as well :)

something i did for the main wall of 'ART SPACE'

 The Whitewashed Project at DBL O


Did a special collaboration with Singapore's finest aerosol/graffiti artist SCOPE ONE. This one's for an awareness on global warming.. but i guess it's too late to save anything for now :/

A great thank you to the branding manager of DBL O Franny and the nice people we've worked with throughout the great time spent working in the club. I bet other huge clubs in SG has never done this before, letting local artists show their talents in a huge way. We salute you!

I Am Zahir.
I am also serving in an 8 year old instrumental band called I Am David Sparkle, which i play the drums for and the band has pretty much stories to tell as for this hardworking band have made history for being the first instrumental band from Singapore to be invited to play SXSW(south by south west) In Austin Texas, and at the same time we were all very very busy preparing for a tour from february all the way through April. We get to play 4 different countries and be at the best cities in the world, the experience is priceless and we have tons of people to thank for making the tour possible. The whole experience is breathtaking and yea, simply amazing. The band played in The Phillipines, The USA, Hong Kong & Vietnam. 


My Disco

This Will Destroy You

Wolves In The Throne Room

And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead...

Easy Star All Star.

The Lovely Tara Macpherson is one of my favorite artist(google her name and you'll know what im talking about) after a Pelican set at the SouthernLord Records showcase. One thing about the festival, Fucking amazing!!! We made loads of new friends and get to see great bands which we wanted to see Live!

And guess who else is in town.. :)

The venue we played.
Our merch table.

Our manager Mrs Wu.

I Am David Sparkle rocking the stage at SXSW.

Houston Texas
We all drove up to Houston to play a small show in a record store.

Cactus Music store, the record store we played at.

The band also played Boston, and was in Los Angeles for a couple of days before we head for Hong Kong. You can read on about the band's adventures here and also on our myspace blog. Show us some love, visit our myspace if you want to check the band out, .

 KILAS does Topman...pfft.
I got invited to do a live demo at Topman/Topshop store at the Marina Square. I think this is in conjunction with the Worldwide Festival 2009. Boring stuff, but yea i was bored.

i spill black paint on to the acrylic sheet and use a pen knife to scrap off the outlines... pfft. 

Yafi's playroom.
Was hanging out at my brother's place and due to boredom, i wonk on the walls for my nephew's playroom... again, i was bored.

This is my nephew Yafi. Ok He's happy.. :)

 KILAS returns to Haji Lane.
I used to live at 73 Haji Lane, it is where the old STRAITS RECORDS use to be.That was in 2005 thru 2007 and yes, i use to live and work in a record shop. Back then Haji Lane use to be a quiet no yuppie tycoon parents street jacks shops or hangouts. I can only recall MOSI CAFE and KAKI 5 cafe & gallerie, and of course Whiteroom..was quiet back then and i love it when that lane is quiet but now,i don't even wanna talk about what happened to it. couple of months back i was back at 73 Haji Lane to throw a piece on the shop front of this clothing store called cosmic. Everything went great before planning on this job where the kids there offered a decent fee of 500 bucks to do their shop front, but as usual, people never keep their word and they slashed down the fee to 350bucks, fair enough again im bored and in need of cash to survive,i agreed to do it at that price and having the boys to pay for the paints and spraycans, and of course i did this because i use to live in that paricular shop before and Amir is my friend..:) 

This is done in 2005 when STRAITS was still around. Yes, i was bored. :)
4 years later, this is what i did for the shopfront of the whole unit. It's a half fuck job because i never like the guys who commisioned me this and the best part this whole piece didnt even last for 48 hours and they repainted everything back to orange without telling me about it. Again, i've never worked with such fuckers in my life. I wish these fuckers the best.. and Amir, hahaha.

The Conclusion
This is the first post for this blog, and it is just me updating what i've been doing for this year.. It's a year of good experience and bad luck and fuck ups. 2009 is almost over in a couple of months time, and i believe next year will be good( i hope) Im glad i am still alive for now. It's the year where scandals happened, best friends became assholes, and loved ones got dissapointed. Hang in there, this is just the begining. :)
