There’s always an ethereal quality to Yusof Majid’s works. He is a product of a Malay-British parentage and hails from a well to do family who had a happy childhood, complete with a comprehensive art education. From an early age, art has been a part of Yusof Majid’s life. He grew up in England, and had an appreciation for art at a young age. Born in 1970, Yusof Majid’s creative work was predominantly inspired by the 1980s. The artist attended the Chelsea School of Art, England from 1988 to 1993. Yusof sees his paintings as a naive surrealist extension of his inner self, emptiness and euphoria in landscapes of memory and dreamscapes. Art comes naturally to Yusof and it’s no surprise that his artistic journey began with his childhood. His imagination may run wild but it is rooted into his exciting childhood experience. This piece is an example of such childhood adventure, when he guides spectators across the blue sky to embark on an exploration. In his quest of true humanity, he is constantly telling stories with his brushes, putting colourful images onto the canvas and celebrating the sheer magic of happiness.
