Zestro Leow

Born: 1994

Hometown: Singapore

Lives and Works: Singapore

 

Zestro Leow is an emerging Singaporean artist who is presently experimenting in the field of ceramics, where he started off as a fine art student from NAFA. With curiosity and passion for the Japanese culture, Leow’s ceramic sculptures are strongly inspired by the beliefs and aesthetic ideas of the Japanese.

In Zestro’s current practice, he attempts to challenge the idea of functionality and values within ceramic pieces when every physical feature of functionality has been made obsolete. He creates Shinto shrines influenced sculptures by the method of stacking individual wheel-thrown ceramic vessels vertically.

The artist enshrines the abstraction of art’s ephemeral appeal in the literal sculptures of shrines, to parallel the intricacy of mere non-functional objects, when by means of subjecting them to significations and purposes, have their worth redefined.
