Former National Art Laureate and Johor born artist Datuk Syed Ahmad Jamal has given much to the Malaysian art world in his teachings, services as board and committee member to various art-related organisations as well as being an art curator. In 1995 he was awarded the National Art Award which recognised him as a National Artist. He is probably one of the country’s first abstract artists and he uses the non-figurative language to express his ideas about culture, politics and poetry.
