Born 1971 in Kedah, Sabri Idrus is a visionary contemporary artist, obsessed with experimental approaches in combining painting, graphic design and industrial materials to achieve a liberated socio-cultural dogma towards reinventing a new form of symbol in art. Sabri’s interest lies in his development of body of works that tries to unfold his critical notion towards the social condition and the parody against institutions that secures that definition between painting and crafting painting. His belief in art making, especially paintings as an inherent social process that submerged him in technical and material advancement through experiments. His portfolio ranging not only from painting works, but also publication and graphic design, multimedia and video production, installation and sculpture.
His works are known to encircle around working with surface and spatial stacking with organic fluid and temporality forms which is very much his forte and trademark. His works are also known to be highly intellectual where he successfully integrates symbolism with philosophy which are never literal, offering viewers and appreciators the opportunity to learn more about how his messages are conveyed. His mastery of lines puts him among the best in the art scene and one who is distinguishable through his art work and signature. Breathtaking artwork is what Sabri is known for and he rarely disappoints.
