New Straits Times - - News -

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.
