Rimba dan Api-Api exemplifies particular signatures from Fauzin’s career up until its production in 1998 and is thus immediately recognizable as one of his mid-career artworks. Intensely patterned and textural, the artwork at first glance appears dominated by a sea of green, with flashes of gold and edges of white. A second look reveals the main body of the canvas to be built up from a series of canvas strips that have been dipped in several colours of acrylic and pasted over each other on the canvas’ surface, in a technique he successfully worked with for White Painting in Black Frame, which won him Third Place in the 1994 Philip Morris Art Awards, Malaysia. The stark white edge at the side of the painting offers viewers a sense of visual relief, providing balance to the intensity of colour, pattern and texture that densely fills the majority of Rimba dan Api-Api.

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.
