The Segerak Series is a heartfelt homage to the beauty and synchronicity of movement. Yusof’s brushstrokes evokes passion and freedom of expression with swathes of paint, and the suggestion of energetic motion.

In many of his Segerak pieces, the works contain a personal story and/or reflect upon the good and evil in our world today. Although, Segerak’s themes are somewhat mellow in comparison to those represented in Siri Tari, the works are no less energetic, and contain a vibrancy that have taken his works to a new level. Using a combination of mediums, from charcoal and chalk to pastels and oil paint, he has employed a variety of spontaneous marks and lines to document human movement. With broad, confident brushstrokes he applies varying layers of colour and intermittent expressive lines to his canvas to capture the mood, feeling and atmosphere of the story he is trying to tell.
