Hailing from Kelantan, Fauzan Omar received his Master in Fine Art (Paintings) from the Maryland College Institute of Art, Baltimore, Maryland, United States in 1984. Prior to that, he obtained a diploma in art teaching (ATD) from Institut Teknologi MARA (now UiTM), Shah Alam, Selangor in 1974. Environmental issues have always been his concern, harking back to the days as a youth living in the suburbs, occasionally encountering that unexpected bloom that graces the mid-morning air. Reminiscing them, Fauzan is greatly affected by the progressive changes he observes. His works re-interpret the issues of forest fires, haze, and overdevelopment by depicting the resilience of people who were tested under such tragic and harsh living conditions. He also uses the collage technique in search of the meaning of materiality as well as the intertwining relations between natural beings and human creation.
