Jalal Sarimon

Jalal was born in Singapore in January 1964. He received his formal art training at
Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts and graduated in 1989. He is currently working as
an Art Coordinator.

This new-generation artist has been receiving awards in the art circle since his
school days. Jalal is an artist who loves to use “strong” colours and eccentric
illustrations to portray his messages. He has gained a few accolades that include
the prestigious Phillip Morris Award 1994 and Phillipe Charriol – Most Promising Artist
1995. Some of his works are collected by National Museum Singapore, Corporate
buyers and individuals, locally and overseas.

His works are full of symbolism, which are open to a variety of interpretations. This
artist is inspired, and his art bears a direct relationship to society and the environment.
He is a social commentator and certainly fulfils the requirement of social
commitment. The one great artist that has been his influence is Vincent Van Gogh.

As he is trained in graphic design, his subjects are carefully chosen, and he plans
his compositions so as to allow maximum exposure to his chosen images. Jalal
normally portrays cheerful paintings. A thoughtful artist who can continue to
explore with confidence.

“My art pieces are mainly seriously illustrated and bright in colour. I just want
everybody to enjoy them. Some of my ideas come when playing with children as
they are innocent, pure and beautiful.”
