Never one to be too direct in his messages through his art, Fauzul Yusri sticks to the philosophy that, “Artists should not be too direct, and be more creative with their messages.” Set against a background of deep red, the only forms present in this canvas is a figure that looks like a woman. A white bubble- like depiction appears from this figure, which gives the impression that this figure imagines itself as the etching — a sexy (as indicated by its title) and confident. 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.
