For Nizar Kamal Ariffin, his artworks are not mere intricately planned and structured lines. These lines are what he uses to figuratively express spirituality, freedom, faith and personal growth – all of which are interconnected in the world as in the paintings, infinite and ongoing. The beauty is in both the artistic prowess and the effect it gives, as the entire methodical, complex lines are brought together in unity in such a strikingly anarchic manner.

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.
