Born in 1951 in Kelantan, Fauzan Omar received his Master in Fine Art from the Maryland College Institute of Art, Baltimore, Maryland, United States in 1984. Fauzan’s 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.
Fauzan has received numerous awards including the Australian Cultural Award (International Cultural Relations Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Australia, 1995), the Major Award of Philip Morris Art Competition (National Art Gallery, Malaysia ,1995), the First Prize/ Major Award in Malaysian Scenes Art Competition (Kontena Nasional, National Art Gallery, Malaysia, 1989) and the First Prize/Major Award (Abstract Painting) in Pemodalan Nasional Berhad Art Competition (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia,1985).
