A brilliant, eye-catching diptych, Mohd Raduan Man employs a metallic green hue across the canvas, accompanied by shades of black and tinges of yellow. At the heart of the painting, the wayang kulit character is decked in all gold. Mohd Raduan Man is a Malaysian visual artist who was born in 1978. To this young artist the production of his artworks are dynamic movements that possess strong statements that must be conveyed to his audience.

He dabbles in various art techniques including printing onto large canvases using wood as his blocks, the end result is truly unique.
