50 Malayan Tigers #2
Acrylic on canvas, 2016
The Malayan Tiger is a critically endangered subspecies. Only found in the Malay peninsula, there are about 250-340 adult tigers left in the wild (an estimate jointly announced by the Wildlife Department & MYCAT). Animal poaching and loss of habitat from development projects are some of the main threats that causes their decline.
I created a black and white series of three Malayan tiger paintings in 2015-2016 to help create awareness about the plights of this critically endangered species. The Malayan tiger is also the national animal of Malaysia.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
1977 Born and lives in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Adept at drawing at an early age, Nicholas was fortunate to have studied with several art teachers during his formative years. It was during this period he learnt the fine arts of illustration and watercolors, as well as woodcarving and batik. Also around this time, he was involved in his very first art exhibition as a youngster. After school, Nicholas worked in several industries. As a learning process, he worked as a graphic designer, photographer, sound engineer, music producer and achieved some success as a DJ, winning some awards. This also gave him the opportunity to travel around Asia as a performer. In late 2011, taking a backseat from music, he returned to art, and since then has been involved in various group and solo exhibitions, as well as delving into a three-month art residency in Q4 of 2014 (which also saw him attending a mentorship program by Wei Ling Gallery). Today, Nicholas's works can be found in galleries and in the homes of private collectors from locales such as London, New York, Germany, Italy, Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia, to name a few. Taking cues from the great masters, Nicholas's style can best be described as colourful and traditional, with a contemporary flair. His work borders on semi-realism, and has been revered for his work with light and shadows. His favourite subjects are landscapes and portraits, but he occasionally challenges himself with mixed mediums and experiments with various (sometimes rudimentary) drawing tools to create different works of art. In 2016, Nicholas opened his own workspace, Satu Arts Studio & Gallery, which is conveniently located in Damansara Perdana Shopping Centre, Petaling Jaya, where he paints, reads, and works on his art shows and exhibitions.View Profile »
