Raja Shahriman graduated from the Mara Institute of Technology in 1990 and taught at the Malaysian Institute of Art. In 1992, he won the Minor Award at Salon Malaysia. His prolific metal sculpture, Growth with Equity, stands in Taman Wawasan on Jalan Sultan Ismail in Kuala Lumpur. Raja Shariman broke the gentility of the Malay psyche when he introduced his Killing Tools steel works to the public in the War Box, Lalang and Killing Tools exhibition in 1996. The harshness in those works was toned down when his ‘Nafas’ exhibition was introduced.
