Based in Singapore, Winner Jumalon has forged his own vocabulary of portraiture in which the viewer doesn’t encounter just a face but a personality. This holds true in his work. From a top angle, we see a woman smiling, having broken through a metaphorical concrete. She is a picture of defiance, of triumph over adversity, underscored by expressionistic streaks of color that convey energy and an unflagging sense of self.
