The work of Fauzulyusri has been consistently strong over his 2 decade-long careers, with 10 solo exhibitions and countless group exhibitions to his name. His ability to pragmatically push his painting in new directions while maintaining a vocabulary of individual mark-making has arrived at a mature expression. Heavy-bodied pigments like oil paints, pumice & bitumen compliments the kind of signature surface scarring, loose irreverence and layering that have become fundamental to the structure of Fauzul’s images. The viewer can easily dissect the image into layers that build the picture, not only in terms of traditional spatial depth from thin paint on raw jute to a dense top application but also as a device in creating texture within the painting to enliven the surface. It animates the isolated figures and forms so that they appear to float, masked and cropped collage-style by the dense upper surface. While it is easy to read Fauzul’s paintings as the games and dreams of a child, Fauzul’s geometric abstractions also have the urbanity of graffiti, of scuffed and scarred walls and that sense of decay of contemporary life. Fauzulyusri graduated from UiTM Shah Alam, Selangor, Malaysia in 1999, and has been exhibiting in various venues in Malaysia, Brunei Darussalam, Indonesia, Singapore, and the UK. Fauzulyusri ‘s artworks are in the public collections of Balai Seni Lukis Negara (KL), Bank Negara Malaysia (KL), Kementerian Pembangunan Wanita dan Keluarga (KL), Maybank Finance Bhd (KL, Malaysia), among other institutions.
