Allison M Low Born: 1989 Singapore
Fascinated by the human condition, she works primarily as an image-maker, murals, installation art, and digital projections. There’s the saying that the world is one’s oyster. As a young girl, Allison feels that it implied to her that there would be treasures for the taking. “Inside an oyster, pearls materialise through a process that seems akin to some form of arcane magic,” Allison said. She liked the idea of these mysterious inner workings, that produced only beautiful things; ultimately, things that are coveted for their inherent value.
After graduating with a Diploma in Visual Communications from Temasek Polytechnic School of Design, Allison obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art from the College of Fine Art (UNSW) in Sydney where she majored in drawing and painting. Her work has been showcased internationally and since 2010, her works have been exhibited in TAKSU Singapore and TAKSU Kuala Lumpur among others. She also frequently takes part in local art events in Singapore such as the annual Illustration Arts Festival run by OIC Singapore. Allison’s 2015 debut solo exhibition ‘Oddlings’ received the ‘Highly Commended’ prize at its first mini showcase in the COFA Annual and travelled to Sydney and other cities.
