"I love art since school days. It makes me happy. After stopping for a while, the opportunity for me to continue to pursue my interest in art happened on Aug 2012, when a friend introduced me to Mr Jimmy Quek. At first, I thought I would only take up a few lessons, but now in 2019, I am already in my 7th year of painting with Jimmy. Initially, my image of an artist is one who will only teach the basics and keep the 'secret recipe' to himself, but Jimmy is certainly not such instructor. His teaching is profound and demonstrates in-depth insights into art. He is a sincere artist, earnest in imparting his experiences and knowledge to his students. He has no reservation nor intends to keep his 'secret recipe' when comes to teaching. He is there to inspire the next generation of painters, and one can certainly feel his passion for art. 'Art is never-ending. Colour unifies and signifies one's inner world.' I am proud and privileged to learn under Jimmy's guidance. I humbly share my 5 paintings, to be part of 'Ongoing Art Sessions 10th Anniversary'. Congratulation Jimmy!" -  Janivfer Lim. (https://artzolute.blogspot.com/)

"The   reason   why   I   wanted   to   be   taught   by   Jimmy   Quek   was   his   open-mindedness towards   art   and   his   wonderful   use   of   colours.   His   use   of   colour   is   so   extremely beautiful.   The   combination   of   his   colours   and   the   vibrancy   of   them.   It   results   in dreamy paintings representing an ideal world." - Bianca Kremer.

"As   a   graphic   designer,   I   have   to   often adhere    to    the    clients'    design    briefs and   the   design   works   that   I   produce do    not    reflect    my    true    self.    I    am merely     a     shadow     of     my     clients. However,    through    art,    I    can    express myself     freely     as     I     come     up     with creations      that      portray      my      life's stories.    Every    story    depicts    different emotions    and    states    of    mind.    The process     of     creating     every     artwork helps    me    to    discover    more    about myself    by    having    me    to    be    true    to myself.   Thus,   my   journey   of   being   an artist    has    been    transformational    as my      life's      changes      are      reflected through    each    artwork."    -    Tan    Meng Jun.

ONGOING ART SESSIONS

10TH ANNIVERSARY COMMEMORATION

I   have   committed   to   being   open   to   those   seeking   art   assistance   and counselling.   Since   2009,   I   have   shared   my   skills   and   experience   in the   visual   arts   field   with   people   at   my   home   studio.   This   year   is   the Tenth Anniversary of the ongoing efforts. I   am   fortunate   to   have   met   outstanding   people   from   all   walks   of   life. They   have   different   ages,   professions   and   nationalities   (Singapore, Britain,      India,      Netherlands,      Nigeria,      America,      Japan,      France, Philippines,    Taiwan,    Malaysia,    Indonesia,    Russia,    Myanmar,    Costa Rica,     Australia,     Kazakhstan,     Vietnam,     Serbian,     Korea,     Portugal, Holland,   Hong   Kong,   China,   Ukraine   and   Tibet).   Participants   benefit from   the   art   sessions.   I   am   very   happy   to   see   them   transform   as   the art   journey   develops.   Some   have   become   friends.   I   thank   them   for their friendship. To   commemorate   the   10th   Anniversary,   I   decided   to   publish   this website   to   record   and   promote   the   art   they   created.   I   have   selected 133   unique   and   diversified   pieces   of   art   by   81   selected   participants who   practised   art   with   me   for   some   time   between   2009   and   2019.   I want to share it with everyone. Congratulations   to   the   participants.   I   am   proud   of   your   works.   I   hope you continue to enjoy making art and sharing art with more people.

Prabhakara Jimmy Quek 20 November 2019
"Jimmy is a true artist. More than a skilled technician, his dedication to the craft has made him the free and authentic person that he is who is open to different notions of beauty. This translates into the peaceful environment that he provides for practice and is felt through his calm, patient and understanding demeanour when teaching. From him, I have learnt that I have a voice. For even when I run out of words, I now know to use colour, lines and shapes to communicate. He listens to my ideas and challenges me to consider the alternatives. His belief in me gives me the confidence to share my work and to explore different art forms. It is indeed one of life's blessings that our paths crossed 10 years ago. Today, I continue to enjoy the friendship and banter with a mentor in Jimmy and Siew Hooi, a true artist in her own right, who makes the community complete. Thank you for being advocates of honest expression and creativity." - Vivien Lee.  ( http://www.vivienleeart.com/ )
