Straits Times on LIFE with Jahan, for Sculpture Square's GHOST exhibit/Singapore Biennale 2013, some freaks made complaints to the authorities on our works though, and some members of the public say we will burn in hell, worried they were

Fashion Steps Out,Samsung launches their street outdoor fashion show in Singapore. This event came to a surprise for me, they require me to do up 500 limited edition chairs. No problem on that, it was a success. On the icing, they made 50 limited edition pieces of their Samsung S4 phone cases for the VIP's. If this was done later it would've been a HEGIRA collabo.

Peace be to all. My greatest apology for not updating this blog for the longest time, im busy with projects and what not, and it seems that the only updates from my art occurs only on Facebook. This might come to a surprise to some. But i am now having a reebot to my "alter-ego", i no longer hold any association with the moniker "SKOPE" i have been using for more than a decade, i have since left the facade of "graffiti morales and conduct" and that these rulings holds no weight for me anymore. Being unlawful by means to "get up", being political and going against systems cashing in the misfortunes of others. Most times, i am also forced to paint idols and animated objects while offered a project, these directions are most appealing to the masses, current and accepted. For me it has become like a slug in the chamber, waiting to be squeezed in the trigger to the temple. Im not liking fantasy theories we chase for temporary worldly commodities, they just dont add up with my Deen in Tauhid. My faith is omnipotent against the practicality of mass appeal. This is an introduction of Esotericism which is set fourth to deviate faith in my people. To start this course of Deen, understand, a believer will be forced to accept two evils at one go in current times, the best one can do is to evade the lesser or the greater two. A measurable extent of a particular kind, my art takes its leap via permissible means of graphic and abstract, mostly inspired by calligraphy and my past graffiti handstyles. I welcome you to the world of Hegira (Hijrah in Arabic), which literally means 'migration'. Practising Deen requires one to sacrifice, such is what i am trying to achieve by transcending with my art, lifestyle and worship...the leap to spiritual migration. I welcome myself and my audience to this new universal circumbulation of metamorphosis. Welcome to the 'Hegira Scriptures'.
