There is a distinctive quality to Jai’s work. The bold, vibrant colours and interspersed with contemporary objects and sometimes petai, as depicted in this piece, is beguiling. Affectionally known as Jai, the artist is known to evolve around contemporary objects and issues and has been exhibited in private and public art spaces around the country as well as abroad. He has won awards as an artist while some of his works are permanent collections in corporations and public art galleries like the Balai Seni Lukis Negara and PETRONAS Gallery.
