Artwork description

It’s okay to be not okay. There’s strength in admitting one’s weaknesses. Faced with uncertainties, anxieties and circumstances we put on a brave front. Sometimes to be brave is to accept what is in front of us and realise our own vulnerabilities. We can cope by not coping. Be human, accept the humility of hopelessness. Slowly but surely we will heal. This too shall pass.


Zul Othman, ZERO

Mohammed Zulkarnaen Othman, commonly known by his artist moniker ZERO has been a practising artist since late 2003. His is an unconventional practice, opting to delve into the subculture norms of street art and graffiti. His notions of a street artist being a pseudo documentarist of contemporary urban life is reflected in his growth as an artist throughout the years. His artistic research and works revolve around contemporary issues on urban social life and space, current affairs and adverse effects of pop culture. A reactionary artist, ZERO's body of works attempts to negotiate the oddity of street and graffiti art in a regulated space while creating social commentaries on the notion of society and space. His exploits with his defunct collective ARTVTS, has been acknowledged as influencers of the street art scene in South East Asia. He has since founded the RSCLS collective and is still currently active in archiving and documenting urban art practices in South East Asia. His critical approach into understanding and researching urban art practices is apparent in his contemporary practice as an artist. From 2008 till 2010, ZERO was an associate artist with The Substation. In 2013, he was awarded the Young Artists Award by the National Arts Council and also the National Arts Council Seed Grant Award with RSCLS. His works have been acquired by the Singapore Arts Museum in 2010 as part of their permanent collection and he has participated in, organised and curated multiple exhibitions and events both in Singapore and internationally over the course of his artistic practice. He holds a Master of Arts ( Fine Arts) Degree from LASALLE College of the Arts/ Goldsmiths UK.
