Zelin Seah is concerned with negative space, centring cloud-like figures in his paintings to generate a feeling of transcendence.

These forms are rendered from a variety of media, including oil and aerosol spray in this painting, while other recent works utilise knife-carving techniques to emphasise the empty spaces within their surfaces.

The artist, who graduated from the University of Central England with a B.A. in 2007, is currently Senior Lecturer in Fine Art at The One Academy, Kuala Lumpur.
