Faizal Suhif, born 1984 graduated from UiTM with his Master degree in Fine Art last year is having a solo exhibition entitled Stories From The Soil at the G13 Gallery from 1st March to . Exhibiting 25 pieces of new works including oil paintings and transfer printings, the artist will also complete the exhibition by installing nature elements to enhance the visual communication.
Spending plenty of time while making art and has developed from the conventional printmaking, Faizal invented his very own printmaking skills to create artworks. “I like to wander around my living area with my tool kit, whenever I see interesting texture, the ground the cement, I will start doing the transfer print", said Faizal during an interview. To him the time consumed is not merely a process of art making but also a conversation with the nature and meditation to the artist himself.
Growing up from a farming family, Faizal's concern is about Mother Nature and he believes in the effort of seeding. "Seeds can grow into trees, they are the food and oxygen supplier, but people don't normally appreciate seeds", Faizal finds people often running after velocity and achievements but neglected the basic elements that breed us, he hopes his artworks can ease the pace and calm the soul, at the same moment convey his theory to the audiences.
