Artist info

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.

“Magnolia Grandiflora” is a species of the Magnolia tree that has large fragile white flowers and glossy dark green leaves with furry brown undersides. I liked working together with 56Fili using velvety matt screen printing inks and a dark color palette to suit Magnolia’s nature. The colors are carefully fine-tuned to give the print a dimly lit and sophisticated dark atmosphere. AMOK ISLAND
