Zulkifli Yusoff draws caricatures and character parodies of the types of people that he sees in society with a pop-art style. Using this form of abstractism in art, he criticizes on social and political issues. His characters are usually drawn in an ostentatious and overstated manner, each with their own personality and unique trait. This is no different, proving to be a narration political and social commentaries. Besides wowing the audience with his skills and techniques in art, he also injects humour into his paintings, making them all the more entertaining and a joy to explore.
