finding paintings

I’m so late with my blog posting today.  Sometimes I just can’t find the right thing to feature.  I came across these paintings today from Singapore artist Prabhakara Jimmy Quek, and they caught my fancy.

I like the gradations of color and abstract look to this.  It also reminds me of some of the ripped paper collage pieces I have seen lately.

Quek has participated in group art exhibitions around the world, including Europe and the U.S. He lives and works in Singapore.

Quek began as a student of the Nanyang Academy of Fine Art and La Salle of Singapore.  At the end of his first year, he was promoted to third year status.  His career began with his own design company, but moved into full time painting.

He uses the Sanskrit name “Prabhakara” to sign his work, which means “Store of Light.”  See his work online:  http://pabha.com/.
