Zulkarnaini
(b. 1969 in Padang, Indonesia)

Zulkarnaini grew up observing his father painting in the house. His own artworks illustrate all the different objects with abstract lines to demonstrate how he procedures systematically unfolded the endless formal possibilities that could be derived from predetermined sets of logical principles.

He is seeking to create aesthetic narrative with simplicity through a disciplined practice of drawing lines. Zulkarnaini expresses himself with paint on carpets. Straight lines represent calmness and balance, curves relate to movements; other shapes evoke feelings of floating and flying. In his recent research in lines, the expansion yields a wonderful lesson in scale, creating the illusion of maximising space.

Has been with Sin Sin Fine Art since 2017.
