Born in Jitra, Kedah in 1969, painter Rohaizad Shaari graduated in Fine Arts from UiTM Shah Alam in 1992. Dabbling predominantly in the watercolour medium, the artist seeks inspiration from the Malaysian village landscape, with his favourite being ‘gerek’ or an ‘old bicycle’ appeared in nearly every of his paintings, which went on to inspire an entire series. Rohaizad’s paintings and works are visual depictions of human life and condition. The subject of nature and matter as a metaphor, relates to human action with various mannerisms and behaviours. Rohaizad relates in visual language his own background, living experience, his observation of the physical surroundings and the farmer’s lifestyle that are very close to his heart.
