In perpetuation to her existing repertoire of e-waste artworks, E-Songket stands as her latest affirmation to her Malay heritage as Nor Tijan fashions her own design of batik. Songket is a popular form of textile art in Malaysia with history that goes back to as far as 7th century. In her repeated use of e-waste, Nor Tijan addresses her contemporary audience of the possible alternate use of e-waste while duly exhibiting the possibilities of creating new forms and designs from rigid geometrical shapes of e-waste. In doing so, the young artist not only grants a new varied imagination for art lovers but concurrently addresses the social concerns of society today.

Armed with a fine arts master’s degree from UITM, Nor Tijan has been making waves as a full-time contemporary artist in the local arts scene with her play of mixed media and especially e-waste. With her arts major in sculpture, it comes as no surprise when Nor Tijan is able to transform the use of e-waste into two-dimensional sculptural format. Many people upon seeing her final works maybe unaware that Nor Tijan is a very good painter. Before she meticulously selects each component of the electronic parts and organizes them into the final composition, she actually makes the effort to painstakingly paints her subject matters in order for her to create depth and perspective to
the form, as seen in her 2018 works on the seven prime ministers of Malaysia. In her latest transition and development of her tribute to the Great Master series, Nor Tijan takes it to another level by reinterpreting the well-known local modern masters such as Syed Ahmad Jamal and Hoessein Enas through the use of e-waste. Again, the e-waste are used but this time caste in a tile-like resin as if immmortalising the greatness of these Great Masters.
