While most of the viewers find that this is a highly methodical, structured and highly-disciplined piece of work with intricate, precise lines for design, Nizar Kamal Ariffin’s works bear a greater and deeper meaning to them. The lines signify spirituality, liberty, faith and personal growth, and as one can see, they are all interwoven and connected in the world (the canvas). The lighter space in this piece signifies balance in life, and contextually, it means that we need faith to have balance in life. Nizar Kamal Ariffin was born on the 9th of September, 1964 in Kuala Lipis, Pahang. He was a member of SENIKA, Kuantan’s state of art society. While working with the Ministry of Culture and Youth, he was appointed the Taman Seni Budaya Pahang’s Resident Artist. After having graduated from University Sains of Malaysia and trained in Fine Arts and Graphics, he became a full-time artist and joined the Conlay Artist Colony in 1998 at Craft Complex Malaysia.
