Raduan Man has always been obsessed with man-made machines and has translated that obsession into his artworks. “I am always fascinated by the mechanics behind the design of cars, motorcycles and airplanes. I especially like the designs of the Volkswagen and the Vespa in the early 60s,” said the artist. As seen in this piece, a popular black cab design is captured.

“Some of my works are statement of my dreams, memories, strength and self-belief. These images basically relates to my life and gave me the determination in facing the struggle in my journey as an artist,” he explained.

Mohd Raduan Man was born in 1978. His works, filled with dialogues to the audience, possess strong meanings and statements that he wishes to convey to audience, and a number of his works have been sold at auctions.
