Amok Island

Amok Island (born Amsterdam, 1983) is a multi-disciplinary artist from the Netherlands, based in Fremantle, Western Australia and if he wasn't an artist he would be a biologist. Heavily inspired by early naturalists’ scientific illustrations, his work embodies the accuracy and precision representative of technical drawings, used for identification purposes. The theme of natural exploration and conservation is a strong and constant undercurrent of Amok Island’s artistic practice. His lifelong fascination with nature and her relationships and history with mankind drive the artist’s obvious appreciation and obsession with his subjects and his urge to direct the attention of his audience to them. Amok Island pursues a point of balance where minimal shape and colour remain capable of realistically representing a subject. To accomplish this, he renders his subjects to near bare minimum geometric elements of form, and places paramount importance on the use of a carefully considered colour palette. Amok Island has created murals in over 25 countries worldwide and exhibited his work in Australia, the Netherlands and Japan.

This print is part of the “Wildflowers of Italy” series

“For my residency at Varsi Gallery I tried to find flowering plants that everyone in Italy knows, but maybe do not always get the attention they deserve. The plants I found and used for my designs are generally considered weeds, they grow in Rome without help from people in between the cracks of walls and streets, in forgotten places of the city and on the walls of the riverbanks. Nobody asked for them to be there, but they demand their place and show their flowers beautifully and strong claiming their place in the city.” Amok Island
