Ipoh-born Fendy Zakri has a primal relationship with his art.
Fendy challenges conventional perspectives with hidden images in his works. His work might look like a mess of colours and lines on canvas, but Fendy insists that every stroke of the brush is deliberate, every line is carefully composed – not unlike what happens behind the scenes with an orchestrated car crash in an action movie.
“I play with space, texture, colours, form, composition and balance … and then distort it to make my artwork look abstract. And to hide the images within my painting even better, I explore ambiguous space, flat space and deep space,” he says.
Fendy Zakri is a self-taught artist based in Kuala Lumpur and had his first solo exhibition in 2014, entitled “Seeing the Unseen”.
