A win­ner in street art

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - HIGHER EDUCATION -

VIC­TORY was cer­tainly sweet for Mohd Redzuan Mohd Ali as he was de­clared the win­ner in the Best Cat­e­gory – Tokyo City in the re­cently con­cluded KL Street Art Fes­ti­val 2013 (KLSAF 2013), the first le­gal street art fes­ti­val .

The com­pe­ti­tion was or­gan­ised by 1Shamelin Shop­ping Mall KL in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Malaysian Youth Com­mu­nity (MYC). It aimed to pro­vide a plat­form for budding artists to ex­hibit their work and to show­case their skills. Win­ners were cho­sen based on orig­i­nal­ity, cre­ativ­ity and ef­fec­tive­ness.

More than 100 par­tic­i­pants took part in this com­pe­ti­tion. Each con­tes­tant was given one shop where they were to paint on the store shut­ter freely based on a theme that rep­re­sented Kuala Lumpur, Tokyo and Seoul.

Mohd Redzuan is cur­rently pur­su­ing a Di­ploma in Graphic De­sign at the Fac­ulty of In­for­ma­tion Sci­ences & En­gi­neer­ing (FISE), Man­age­ment & Sci­ence Univer­sity (MSU).

“I would like to thank MSU, par­tic­u­larly my lec­tur­ers. They make lessons very lively and fur­ther stim­u­lated my in­ter­est in cre­ative arts,” said Mohd Redzuan. He also ex­pressed his ap­pre­ci­a­tion to his par­ents for their con­stant sup­port.

The achieve­ment is an­other feather in the cap for MSU stu­dents. Pre­vi­ously, stu­dents from FISE won the na­tional level of the Java Jive Re­gional Chal­lenge, The Most In­no­va­tive Team in the Bada De­vel­oper Univer­sity Chal­lenge, the VOIR Shoez De­sign Com­pe­ti­tion and the Advertisement De­sign com­pe­ti­tion or­gan­ised by the Min­istry of Higher Ed­u­ca­tion Malaysia.

The men­tioned achieve­ment is part and par­cel of the in­cul­ca­tion of sev­eral in­no­va­tive strate­gies in the univer­sity’s cur­ricu­lum. A range of co-cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties aimed to en­rich grad­u­ates’ mar­ketabil­ity are also avail­able through­out each aca­demic year.

FISE at MSU of­fers bach­e­lor and di­ploma pro­grammes ma­jor­ing in a wide area of in­ter­est. Among them are Com­puter En­gi­neer­ing, Graphic De­sign, Games De­sign and An­i­ma­tion, In­struc­tional Multimedia, Mo­bile & Wire­less Tech­nol­ogy, Vis­ual Com­mu­ni­ca­tion and Mar­ket­ing and Cre­ative Multimedia.
