Faizal Yunus

Faizal Yunus (b.1989, Malaysia) is a Malaysian based artist who works mainly in printmaking, painting and installation. He graduated in Bachelor of Fine Arts from Mara University of Technology (UiTM) in 2012 majoring in printmaking. Faizal has been drawn towards nature as he grew up in such a surrounding that has helped him nurture his imagination and interpretation of the greenery around him. Autonomy has driven him to believe that an egalitarian society is vital which is where he adapts to the banal practices of everyday life into his abstract print paintings.

His awards include winning the 2019 of the MEAA 2019 (Malaysian Emerging Artists Award), HOM & Galeri Chandan, Kuala Lumpur, and the 2018 Resident artist for Rimbun Dahan, Kuang, Malaysia. Selected exhibitions include Vortex (2018), Richard Koh Fine Art, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Matrix (2016), Richard Koh Fine Art, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

In his first solo exhibition Matrix, he started looking into his daily life essentials and gathering objects surrounding him for ideas and inspiration as he found limitations in available facilities and easily gathered materials. Vortex revolved around a journey of finding different perspectives and causes of the actions he chooses to make, and served as his poetic statement on the current state of pollution and our role in undoing the beauty of our landscape.
