Being one of the reputable pioneers of graffiti art in Singapore, HEGIRA (past tagname SKOPE) has been an integral figure in bringing graffiti art to the mainstream audience in Singapore. HEGIRA is also accredited with creating an awareness of the Singapore graffiti art movement amongst the global graffiti community through his involvements in various international exhibitions and events. Now stepping away from the graffiti “rules of engagements” and morphing to a new phase, HEGIRA (Hijrah in Arabic), which means ‘migration’, transcends art, lifestyle and worship…the leap to spiritual migration, taking his audience into this new circumambulating metamorphosis with scents of organic substance and pugilistic abstracts. He deconstructs the style melody, subjects it to counterpoint and inversion and renders it in ragtime rhythmic flows.
