This artwork incorporates Haafiz Shahimi’s iconic elements, but is interpreted in a brand-new presentation. The use of batik dyes made the palette more intense and diverse, with blue, red, orange, and turquoise tones dominating the sepia tone, making his pyrographs more vivid. In order to imitate the elements of Chinese ink painting, Haafiz chose to use batik dye on the surface of jute, just like Chinese ink on rice paper. As the blend of batik dye with water produces special penetrating effects of luminosity and transparency. His mark making burns create strokes that imitate Chinese ink painting and expresses the imageries in a semi abstraction of real and surreal effects. This kind of image effect can make people have rich reveries, which is in line with the aesthetic ideal - “Chinese painting pays attention to artistic conception”.

Revolutionising the world of printmaking art, Haafiz Shahimi introduced the unheard-of art of pyrography printmaking through his first ever solo RAGE.
Burning with fire, Haafiz Shahimi may come across as a rebel at times. However it is with this fire that he passionately pursues on with his art and thus it was only a natural course for his choice of pyrography printmaking where the primary play for his art is fire.
Pioneering the art of pyrography printmaking to the world at mere age of 28, Haafiz is always inquisitive and constantly seeks out new ideas and innovations for his art. Following suit in a span of 2 years from his successful solo in 2014, Haafiz never fails to keep his audience in suspense. His constant eagerness and excitement to create and innovate leads to new techniques to his art as he introduces inverted burning and acid burning to produce captivating visual works.
Graduating from MARA University of Technology Malaysia, Haafiz Shahimi carries with him a fine art degree majoring in the art of printmaking. His works are collected by private collectors locally and internationally.
With his keen curiosity and constant search for new techniques, Haafiz Shahimi sets out to be the promising new talent to look out for, as his followers are keenly hungry for more.
