“For me, part of the formal problem
in painting has to do with design
fundamentals and principles,
which is an inherent problem in all
disciplines of the visual arts, be it
design, painting or architecture. As
such, I am conscious of applying a
very complex structured approach
in my work as much as developing
the content in the work.”

An intricate world of characters that appear
like a stream of consciousness, whether in a
myriad of colours or in solemn monochrome,
in sprawling panorama or in neatly framed
segments, these are components of the
teeming inner universe of Donald Abraham.

“When I doodle there are a lot of lines; I like the way 
lines move, meet and connect: 
that's how I see trees; their branches
 have different formations, like a dance.”

Schools of fishes circle in a steady vortex, like
grains of sand swirling through the pinhole of an
hourglass, shaping a tunnel that directs our gaze
towards a distant sun. Across our aquatic vision
swim sea creatures in bursts of colour, or the
silhouette of majestic fishes. We are at the depths of
the ocean, gazing mesmerized at the underwater
traffic above. This is the inner world of Professor
Jalil Othman.

People in shades of gray tinged with splashes of colour, seemingly so 
absorbed in the quotidian that you feel tempted to stretch out a hand
and touch their shoulder, to rouse them. We become observers and 
onlookers, suddenly curious; what could their expressions be like?

1001 Malaysian Artists & Sculptors 2013


It will certainly be a memorable year 2013 as ArtMalaysia proudly presents the 1001 Malaysian Artists & Sculptors, the largest convergence of the nation’s artists and sculptors for a unique charity art event and exhibition that will go into the Malaysia Book of Records!

Artists from all around Peninsular and East Malaysia will be participating in this mammoth effort to create a compendium that showcases Malaysia’s artistic and creative diversity.

The selection of thousand-and-one artists and sculptors will reflect the cultural and ethnic multiplicity of our beloved country; representing a spectrum of mediums and genres of art that make up the multifaceted gem that is Malaysia’s thriving arts scene. We will also be publishing and launching a Directory of 1001 Malaysian Artists & Sculptors in conjunction with the exhibition.

Be sure not to miss out on history in the making!


Tahun 2013 pastinya akan terpahat dalam lipatan sejarah menjadi tahun yang penuh dengan kenangan apabila ArtMalaysia dengan bangganya menganjurkan Pameran 1001 Pelukis & Pengukir  Arca Malaysia. Pameran seni lukis dan arca yang terbesar ini mempamerkan keunikan karya 1001 pelukis dan pengukir arca untuk jualan bagi tujuan amal yang akan dicatatkan dalam Malaysia Book Of Records!

Para pelukis dan pengukir arca dari seluruh Semenanjung dan Malaysia Timur akan mengambil bahagian dalam acara mega yang berprestij ini sebagai satu usaha ke arah menyerlahkan lagi cerminan tentang wujudnya kepelbagaian seni dan kreativiti rakyat Malaysia.

Secara dasarnya, pemilihan seribu satu pelukis dan pengukir arca ini mencerminkan kepelbagaian budaya dan etnik dalam negara tercinta; mewakili kepelbagai spektrum, medium dan genre seni bagaikan sebutir permata bergemerlapan dengan beraneka rupa bentuk seninya yang semakin berkembang maju di Malaysia.

Bersempena dengan penganjuran pameran ini, ArtMalaysia akan menerbit dan melancarkan sebuah direktori bertajuk `Direktori 1001 Pelukis & Pengukir Arca Malaysia’.

Pastikan anda tidak ketinggalan dalam catatan sejarah yang sedang diukir ini.

Organizer message

As the publisher of ArtMalaysia magazine, my job entails me to travel widely within Peninsular Malaysia from time to time. During my countless art quest, I witnessed strange yet interesting real-life scenarios in which many living things are present in artists’ lives. I realised that many artists’ homes usually have aquariums with marine fish, pet dogs, cats, and even spine-chilling creatures like iguanas, spiders, and ants! What’s more, there’s actually an artist who built a garden inside his house to gain his artistic inspirations from the soothing sanctuary while he paints birds and nature.

If you observe the artists up close and personal, you will find out that they are willing to venture to outskirts of town for creative ideas. Sometimes, they can be inspired by going on a horse ride or even sightseeing in the zoo to take snapshots of orang utans and tigers. 

Another beguiling observation is none other than our very own urban lifestyle in the city. Undeniably, many of us breed all types of domestic animals in our sophisticated homes, thus there is an ‘animal kingdom’ within a city.

There is an inseparable, unique relationship between artists and animals on the land, water and air. Nothing can keep them apart when there is continuity in the sense of appreciation towards each other.

Therefore, I invite artists to create their own version of animal kingdom on canvases. The experiences are definitely going to be astounding as this kingdom is soundless but the existence of animals on canvases will make every viewer’s imagination goes alive. The dog may ‘bark’, the cat will ‘meow’, and the cow is ‘mooing’, but all of them will indeed bond with each artistic soul in distinctive perspectives.
