Life After COVID: Jaxton the Visual Artist

  • Follow the lives of eights artists in Singapore as they reveal how COVID-19 has affected them and how they adapted to it. This is the story of Jaxton the Visual Artist.

Jaxton started out with drawings and surrealistic paintings before studying his masters in the Glasgow School of Art in UK. His experiences there encouraged him to experiment outside of traditional art mediums. Some of his works include ‘found objects’—random items he has picked up like sea sponges, metal and glass pieces.

He constantly pursues contemporary art, which has given him more freedom to express himself instead of catering his art for the commercial market. Overtime, he has struck a balance between mural paintings, teaching art at NTU as an alma mater, and collaborating with fellow artists on exhibitions about societal and environmental issues.

However, when the pandemic struck, Jaxton’s projects came to a standstill. One of which was an arts festival: ‘Power Play’. After two years of organising the exhibition and curating the works of over 40 artists internationally, the festival could not be held physically. Instead, he had to quickly pivot it to a digital festival for audience to view and interact from their homes.

These setbacks have not held Jaxton back as more projects began to pile on after the Circuit Breaker period. Find out how he adapted his art to the restrictions and handles the influx of projects in this episode of Life After COVID.
