Cerita Ceriti I: Whose artist is this? continues Fauzin’s signature style of building up textures and colours through the layering of collaging and paint. The structural integrity of mixed media works such as this is preserved by the construction of individual layers, each carefully selected with appropriate intervals between applications. The initial layer in Cerita Ceriti I: Whose artist is this? was the patchwork of colourful batik, which created the dominant colour field. Fauzin then overlaid the batik with cut canvas patterns coated in thick white oil paint to produce a monotone textural surface. As such, the dimensions of light and shadow are introduced, adding to the depth of the visual when light shines on the painting. Fauzin’s use of batik can be considered crucial in connecting the audience with the work, as it initiates a dialogue of the cultural context his art exists in. The representation of a highly recognisable traditional artefact bridges the gap between innate cultural understanding and contemporary life, thus fulfilling the criteria of contemporary art to describe the current state of society.

Based in: Kuala Lumpur
Fauzin Mustafa is an eminent Malaysian contemporary artist that celebrates nature's sovereignty and tropical colours through metaphoric, symbolic and dominant leaf iconography.
Renowned for his mixed media practice since the 1990s, Fauzin combines thoughtful concepts with the formalistic aspects of fine art through recognisable Malay iconography, thereby enabling his audience an easy yet interesting visual experience. Influenced by his environment, his artworks are often representational of the landscapes and cultures that are truly Malaysian.
His innovative play with batik and Malay iconography as well as proverbs provides a viable shift of the modernist to contemporary art whilst showcasing the best of the lesser-known Malaysian culture to the world.
A Fine Art graduate, Fauzin holds several notable awards such as the Young Contemporaries competition, Salon Malaysia, ASEAN Youth Painting and Philip Morris Asian Art Awards. His artworks are collected by private and public collectors locally and internationally.
