Painting on life fetches RM12,000
KUALA LUMPUR: “I Just Want To Scream”, an artwork which took three years to complete, became the first piece to be sold by Suhaidi Razi at Galeri Prima, Balai Berita, The New Straits Times Press, Bangsar, on Wednesday. It fetched a cool RM12,000. Suhaidi, 39, who is a lecturer at Universiti Teknologi Mara’s Fine Arts faculty in Kelantan, said the piece was special to him due to its artistic and aesthetic value.
He said the theme of the painting focused on elements of life, such as mankind, animals, tools and objects.
“This piece has a tale within a tale. It is up to the observer to interpret it,” he said at the launch of his solo exhibition, themed “Paradox”.
Suhaidi, who has been involved in the art world for 22 years, hails from an artistic family. His father and grandfather were both painters.
The exhibition ends on April 5. Open from 10am to 6pm on weekdays, it is also open during weekends by appointment.
