        • Maamor Jantan (b. 1961) Serati: Kampung Activities, 2010
          May. 19, 2024

          Maamor Jantan (b. 1961) Serati: Kampung Activities, 2010

          Est: RM5,000 - RM9,000

          Golden hues of sunlight fell upon the peaceful village houses, with the outer sections and foreground consisting of trees immersed in shadow. Surrounded by a lush forest and clear blue skies, this tranquil image of everyday life could represent moments of joy and contentment in the village. A pair of white coloured geese are observed at the left side of the composition. In Malay art circles, he is known as Mr. Cakcibor (The Dragonfly Man), although everyone knows his name, Maamor Jantan. A protégé of Khalil Ibrahim, Maamor Jantan has come of his own through sheer diligence and practices. He would go all around the country to paint, often with his group of friends and at one time with Khalil himself, when he was more mobile. He has set a palette of mauve hues from light to darker (nocturnal scenes) with delicate transparency. Whether it is a Malay kampung scene, kenduri, fishing village, the country landscapes, his Cakcibor will be there, large and small. Mentored by Khalil in 1984 when he was an apprentice machinist, it took him nearly 30 years before he had his first solo, titled Figment Of Imagination at Universiti Malaya Art Gallery, in April 2014, showing some 150 works. He was a resident artist there, and also had a stint at Belanda Gallery in Langkawi. He is also from the core Conlay group of artists. He is also a musician, leading a traditional keroncong (Malay orchestra) group which even performs in Indonesia.

          A self-taught artist, Maamor Jantan produces vibrant watercolour paintings with captivating compositions. His unconventional approach distinguishes his style from other painters. Although he has been living in the city since the 1980s, he often portrays the East Coast scenes of paddy fields, fishing villages, boats, nets and the sandy beaches in his paintings. Among his favoured subject matters are the Kampung, Bali and Jogja series as well as Paradise series – the three themes in one – besides his profound Dragonfly series. His portrayal of the ‘cakcibor’ with their delicate, transparent wings showed his intimate connection with Nature. “I wanted people to realize how fragile our life really is. At the same time I did not want them to destroy the environment and how urgent it is to protect our ecosystem,” the artist revealed.   Maamor Jantan held first solo exhibition at University Malaya in April 2014 consisting of 150 paintings from the day he first started painting till the present. He worked as an apprentice machinist in Petaling Jaya in the early 1980s, later taking on a role as an assistant curator with an art gallery in Kuala Lumpur. In 1984, he met Khalil Ibrahim who then became his mentor.   REFERENCE http://e.koreanpress.net/detail.php?number=1618&thread=22r16
