Ali Nurazmal is a significant contemporary artist in Malaysia. At 9 years old, Ali Nurazmal Yusoff was exposed to various art expositions. Along with his inquisitive behaviour from self-seeking knowledge to formalistic training has brought him to experience various styles of painting. His larger than life realist paintings have been collected locally and internationally and can be found in the permanent collections of Balai Seni Lukis Negara (National Art Gallery). His ability to capture both the Western influence from globalisation and bring into the Asian flavour has been regarded as the most interesting and unique demeanour to the Malaysian identity.
