About the Artwork:
“ADMISSIONEM is latin for admission. The concept for this piece was on my mind for quite some time, a contemplation on how we face adversity. Hatred creates only more hatred, fear creates only more fear. We can only meet these emotions with graceful peace and responsible calmness.
No adversary we face is so powerful as our own selves. We possess the strength to decrease the power of any hardship with acceptance, calm observation, and love. We can stand in the middle of any storm, with melodies in our heart. The most vicious attacks can be neutralised by listening, understanding and wisdom. It’s the 21st century. It is time to become the human beings we always strived to be.
There was a 150 limited pieces high end collectible art print created by Sideshow Collectibles in 2019 that sold out in four weeks.
The original artwork comes in a beautiful antique custom frame protected by non reflective archival museum glass with stairs like multiple mount. The art itself floats before a board covered with red velvet.” – Máté Jakó
About the Artist:
Máté Jakó is a London based award winning illustrator from South-east Hungary who from a very young age possessed – according to some – an unfortunate obsession of monsters, fairy tales, and super heroes.
He started a long lasting career in theaters and films as an actor before he turned to illustration to create the stories he wanted to tell. Máté currently works as a freelance illustrator. His client list includes Alexander McQueen, Sideshow Collectibles, DC Comics, Chris Nelson FX, and VVDFX creating concept art/creature design for film & video games, fashion prints, book covers, album covers and limited edition film posters. His work has been featured in prestigious publications including: Spectrum, Imaginefx, and 3D total-sketching from the imagination.
His unique style entails the always present darkness mixed with peculiar elegance, and 21st century insecurity. His flowing vines and lines are hinting to this underlying passion, and conflict. However the darkest of these works have some sense of peace and reconciliation that stands in contrast with the seeming chaos that inhabits his frames.
His illustration techniques combine traditional and digital tools or anything really to project the images in his head onto different mediums.
