“Longing To Be Knotted Together” feat. MEGA

Longing to be Knotted together FA

“Don’t wait, do.

You can spend your energy to complain about the opportunities you don’t have, or focus on creating and making things happen.

This is what I am.

I started from scratch, and I consider this as a chance…

My name is MEGA for a reason.

It’s not much about other people.

It’s a constant competition with myself.

I want to do more and to become better every day of my life.”

– MEGA

Born in France and currently living in Bali, MEGA is an artist who has chosen to live a life on his own terms, resurrecting a deep respect for the art of illustration after a life-changing motorcycle accident. Read more here.

“Longing to be Knotted Together” was borne from a personal near-death experience, after which the artist decided to relate his personal pain and anguish in a way only he understood best – through visual expressions of colour, imagery, musings, pop-culture, and his unwavering love for life. The trauma and energy which resulted from the accident allowed him to open his heart and mind in order to simultaneously preserve and reveal the raw elements from both his mental and physical universes within the inner workings of his mind.

Now at SPRMRKT, Singapore marks the end of a heroic and extensive touring exhibition, hailing previously from an epic adventure across Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Paris, Berlin and Marseille.
