Birds in general are widely seen as symbols of freedom and eternity due to their ability to soar high into the skies. We also tend to associate birds with infinite possibilities & renewal going into the uncertain future with positivity. Another symbol of freedom that acts as a contrast around the main focus are magical looking flowers that resemble a flock of vibrant tropical birds taking flight. The bird of paradise (the single bird represents us all living in the garden city.)
About Slac Satu
Slacsatu is a self taught artist and one of the pioneers in the local graffiti scene. He has been writing in the form of graffiti since 1998 and has been commissioned by numerous clients who were enticed by his signature realistic style of spray painting.
Slacsatu’s works are influenced by the raw energy of graffiti fused with a twist of abstract flares, into which he injects the raw technical aspects of spray painting with a traditional painterly approach.
The ‘batik graffiti’ series that he has been working on is an example of his diverse approach to the art form. A revered graffiti practitioner in Singapore, Slacsatu’s achievements are recognised through his participation and awards at the Youthopia Graffiti Competition in 2001 and 2002, the Singapore Street Festival Graffiti Competition in 2006, the SMRT Challenge in 2007 and 2008 as well as the Rakan Muda Graffiti Competition and South City Plaza Graffiti Competition in Kuala Lumpur in 2008.
He has collaborated with Batik master, Sarkasi Said in the Bimbing Event in 2009. Slacsatu had also exhibited at the Lasalle College of the Arts’ highly-debated exhibition ‘Berita Harian 2’ and ‘Is This Home Truly?’ in 2010.
He and his founding collective ZNC (zincnite crew) which is an international graffiti team were also involved in 2013 SG Biennale & Chingay 2015. In 2017, Slac was also engaged to be a part of Starhub’s advertising campaign for NDP.
