Orchid Paintings.

Orchid Paintings. Original paintings created by Singapore artist Prabhakara Jimmy Quek. His works are in the permanent art collection of Singapore Art Museum, Ministries and Corporations collection. These orchid paintings are ideal gifts for appreciation events, conference and convention. Unique and artistic works for corporate gifts and private collection. They are available for sale online.

I am happy to be able to share with people my work online.

My Early Works – An Online Exhibition, this online exhibition project has been online for more than 30 days already and I have shown many works there.

You could see some paintings that I did in the 70s these few days, that was the time when I started learning art, Chinese painting.

When we are able to express what we wish to express that is a blessing. We enjoy the freedom of expression and enjoy the act of expressing. Making art is one of the ways that we can enjoy the pure joy of expressing. The time that we spend for art making is a wonderful moment for our being. It can be fun too. We could learn more techniques and hone our skills each time we practise art making. We could sharpen our mind and faculities too. For beginners, to join art exhibition and to show their works to more people could be a delightful experience. It could be a reward for them when their paintings were sold. So if we could spend sometimes for art practising is a nice thing to do in life. We could practise accordingly to our time availability. Half hour to one hour or more everyday is fine. Besides, we still live our normal life outside the world of art. We do our job and earn our living accordingly. We take care of our family. So you still by you as before. You just adjust your times by giving half hour or more for art. So why not give it a try? Visit my Create Something Every Day-100 days art project at:  Hope that could inspire you.

Singapore International Convention and Exhibition Centre is a wonderful place for art fair or events. I saw a Singapore Art 97 cataloge, in that it recorded that National Arts Council and National Heritage Board organized Singapore Art 97 at Singapore International Convention and Exhibition Centre, a biennial national art exhibition that showcases the works of our talented Singapore artists, we could see the rich variety of more than 550 works of art by more than 330 Singapore artists. That was not chiefly concerned with commerce or populist sentiments. I enjoy looking at the paintings images printed in it. Just feel like missing this kind of art events in Singapore again.

Come back to the present. There will be a dialogue session called Advocating the Arts : Who Cares? organized by NAC with the arts community on 26 Aug at Victoria Concert Hall. A Singapore Art Fair in November at Singapore International Convention and Exhibition Centre, and of course many more art activities in SIngapore.

Anyway, share with you a few of my recent paintings. Hope you like them.
