Still Not Perfect 2019
The artwork entitled “Still Not Perfect” is an artwork that expressing about portrait of ourselves as a human with various thoughts, ideology, philosophy, characters and manners in the human itself. Other than that, this artwork also become a reflection on ourselves and communities because each panel of the artwork has its own meanings as if it questions about ourselves. I intended to emerge questions and thoughts to the audience in different formalistic manner with the shape of octagon in my artwork so that the audience can venture into the answers or the secrets of the functionality, the symbolic and its meanings. The meanings of each of these panels are inspired by the words of Kahlil Gibran, a writer and a poet.
Puppet Of ‘The EYE’ 2019
This artwork with the title Puppet of “THE EYE” explains about humanity values that has been increasingly faded and dry as for the empowerment and materialistic greediness that took the innocent lives arbitrarily and has become a bet for The Eye King and his follower’s lust. My artwork is an extended printmaking artwork and also a contemporary artwork that tells about the drowning and chronic humanity issues. National peace issues have been brought to a threat where countries with veto power such as United States of America and its alliances. Furthermore, this contemporary printing artwork also highlights the political context on international grounds, which is about the political intervention and the governing of countries with veto power. We can merely withness that USA has the power to intervene in politics and in governments in outraging countries such as Palestine, Syria, Libya, Egypt and other countries that are governed by Islam leaders.
Di Sebalik Mantera Beradu 2020
My inspiration to create this artwork is from a hip hop song entitled ‘Mantera Beradu’ sang by Malique Ibrahim is a legend hip hop singer in Malaysia. Usually, we often saw and heard artworks that are inspired by a song, which then expressed into an abstract style artwork. However, in my case, I’ve created an artwork that is inspired by the lyrics of these two songs and translates it into a pop and surrealism styles combined. The lyrics of songs has its own deep meaning that has to be read between the lines to create an artwork in a form of visual art. The meanings of each of these panels are inspired by the lyric song from ‘Mantera Beradu’ sang by Malique Ibrahim.
