10月10日,Vans在北京798旻谷艺术画廊精彩呈现与艺术家JAHAN LOH合作的“长城”艺术展览。JAHAN LOH生于新加坡,现居中国台北,作为一个波普艺术家,他十分善长将传统高端的波普艺术与现代街头艺术在他的作品中充分融合。JAHAN曾经为VANS设计过限量版鞋款,今年新款设计也即将在台湾上市。昨天是展览开幕日,我去798拍摄了一些照片来给大家分享,展览将持续15天,有兴趣的朋友都走起来吧。
Vans is excited to present the Vans “Off-The-Wall” x Jahan “the Great Wall” Exhibit at 798 Ming Art Gallery on Oct.10. Originally from Singapore and now currently residing in Taipei, Taiwan, Jahan is a pop artist, who significantly merges both the traditional presentation mode of ‘high-end’ visual pop art and modern street art, into his paintings.


JAHAN从小时候起,就开始穿Vans鞋,玩BMX,他的创作灵感来自于极限运动,“我的创意在于如何征服自己内心的恐惧,相信你自己一定能做到。重点在于表达把自己内心的魔鬼驱逐出去,恢复心灵的秩序。”
Wearing Vans since he was a kid involved in the BMX scene, Jahan draws his inspiration from action sports. “The idea of conquering the spirit of fear and believe in yourself over a set of false values that tells you what you CANNOT do. The key is to lock out the demons in mind, and have discipline,” says Jahan Loh.


此次,Vans再次携手JAHAN,作为他在中国大陆的首次个展,JAHAN在北京798旻谷艺术画廊为我们呈现了“长城”艺术展。
In his first exhibit in mainland China, Vans has collaborated with Jahan again for an exhibit at BJ 798 called, “The Great Wall”.


巨大的外墙象征着不可征服的长城, JAHAN将它作为一个媒体来展示自己征服内心恐惧的理念,征服那些负面的价值观,以一种别人没有尝试过的方式去表达自己。
The exterior large mural with his art graphics, the Great Wall, demonstrates how he uses it as a medium for his own art is to show his concept of conquering the inner false values, and in a way that no one has ever done before, unique and different.


此次展览,他还创作了6件艺术作品,包含了与Vans “Off-The-Wall”的精神相结合的元素,同时也体现他的内心不断征服自己的历程。
Inside, he created 6 pieces of artworks with those elements, showing his development process and tying back to Vans “Off-the-Wall” attitude, which is also defined as being unique, trying something no one ever dares to do.


画廊中间的展示台陈列着他与Vans合作推出的最新联名鞋款,Mountain Mid. 鞋款的设计很低调,除了鞋舌有紫色背景映衬的透明骷髅图案、后跟还有Vans “Off-The-Wall”的标识。
A standing booth inside the gallery is showcasing Jahan’s new collaboration product, the Vans Mountain Mid X Jahan, low profile style except the shoe tongue, pad and heel with the transparent skeleton logo on the purple color.
这是Jahan在2008年与VANS合作推出的鞋款,因为Jahan自己在台湾也有一间鞋店,这款鞋子的第一批货在自己店内一天时间全部售完!然后他买断了这款鞋子的全部200双在店内继续销售,只用了2个星期再次售罄.


这是今年VANS马上要在台湾推出的新款鞋子,还是由Jahan设计,鞋跟部分有很多锯齿状图形,鞋舌上也有骷髅图案,这表示生命中会有各样邪恶与魔鬼与你纠缠,而鞋子上多出采用了紫色,Jahan解释说因为他笃信宗教,紫色在宗教中是保护色,可以助你征服内心恐惧,战胜邪恶。

Jahan Loh, 中文名:罗杰瀚
新加坡人
生于1976年11月8日
2000年毕业于新加坡艺术学院Lassalle SIA,并于2003年获得澳洲
新南威尔士大学设计学硕士学位
兴趣爱好:艺术,滑板,BMX等

Jahan是一个内心叛逆,从小独钟于艺术远胜于书本的人。尽管生于艺术不被重视的年代,他却另辟蹊径,但也许正是艺术本身选择了他,任由他来展示自己的灵感和创作。

Jahan早期从事城市波普艺术绘画,做视觉设计。在他那些引人入胜的作品中,它将传统表现波谱艺术的手法和现代街头文化大量融合。他将一种中西结合的美学观带入街头喷绘艺术,尤其在他与新加坡举办的“CHERRY POP“艺术秀中,这种美学观渗透进了全球Fine Art的领域。他不是在工作室的油布上作画,就是活跃在全球不同媒体或秀场上。Jaha的艺术作品很多都对外销售,包括近期和新加坡的Esplanade CRASHONE(Bronx)的合作,还经常进行国际性的个人绘画、雕塑和油画展。

尽管涂鸦(街头喷绘)仍然在现今属于非法行为,但Jahan一致认为是它令自己摆脱很多麻烦,并让他非常认真地对待自己的学习。目前,他在台湾MACHI Entertainment 公司工作,他坚信自己的艺术(油画、雕塑、漫画等)是展示真实的自己。

这是一个不属于任何一个体系的艺术家,因为他只创造自己的艺术。他那多样性的静态艺术作品正是一个反映他真实理念的静态媒介。

Jahan, A rebel at heart, choosing art over books. At an environment that does little to sustain artists, He has taken the road less travelled, but perhaps Art has chosen him to represent his inspiration and craft.
Jahan is a visual artist who works primarily in the field of urban pop painting. In his visually spectacular work, he significantly merges both the traditional presentation mode of ‘high-end’ visual pop art and modern street art, into his paintings. He introduces a fusion of east meets west aesthetic into urban aerosol painting in the streets, which penetrated into world of fine art through his controversial CHERRY POP art show in Singapore. When’s he’s not in his studio painting on canvases, he can be found painting his name across different mediums and shows round the globe. Jahan has had several sold out art shows including a recent joint show with CRASHONE (Bronx) in the Singapore Esplanade. His drawings, sculptures and paintings exhibit internationally

Although graffiti was illegal at the time, Jahan credits it with keeping him out of trouble and making him take his education a lot more seriously. Currently holds a day job working as the creative director for MACHI Entertainment in Taiwan. He considers his art (painting, tagging, sculpture and comics) as a reflection of his true self.

This is an artist that does not belong to an umbrella body as he is capable of creating his own art. His diverse styles of artworks are just a static medium for expression of his concepts.
