Fauzul Yusri is never direct with his messages. Instead, he delves with the subtle layering of textures and manipulation of surfaces, to create new aesthetic perception of form and floating shapes upon the canvas.
Set against a dark background, the only forms present in this canvas are shadows of grey masses, floating around the canvas. The message is completely subjective, for some it may be a little cynical, ominous or even intimidating in this depiction, but for some it may hold a deeper meaning.
After having graduated from UiTM Shah Alam in 1999, Fauzul has then exhibited his work all around Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Singapore and the UK. He also received special mentions from the Young Contemporary Art Award in 2002 and the Kijang Art Awards in 2004. Malaysia’s National Art Gallery, Bank Negara Malaysia, EQ Fine Arts Gallery and HSBC Bank Malaysia have collected Fauzul’s artworks, and until this day has been noted for his distinctive style in etching techniques.
