This painting is reminiscent of one’s childhood, embodying a spontaneous and casual manner. Aside from the colours that adorn the canvas, there are recognisable bits and pieces of the things we saw, doodled or made during our childhood.

Ahmad Shukri Mohamed lectured at UiTM but decided to focus on being a full-time artist, while still taking on part-time academic work. He is also the co-founder of Matahati, a collective art group. Preferring to have absolute freedom over his style, materials (he forms his work with aluminium foil, paint, paper, oil, to name a few) and subjects, he declared, “the only constant thing in my art is change”.
