Black On Black appears to have a solidly black, textured base, blanketed with raised gold spheres. This textured monochrome is, however, the result of an intense layering process, where several dark or deep shades have been built up to produce the black. Viewers who focus intensely on the canvas will begin to notice several tones, complicit in the generation of this black shade, separate and emerge from the canvas. Working in a reverse process, where the base from which Fauzin began was black and not white, encouraged the artist to focus on the canvas’ tactile quality, and thus special attention was paid to the layering of the sliced canvas strips. As he worked in this manner, Fauzin realized that creating a tactile quality to his surface created differences within a single tone.

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.
