Known as one of the most stimulating artists in Malaysia, Sabri Idrus creates work that lives at the meeting point of rugged beauty and sublime decay. In a country where figurative work largely dominates the contemporary art scene, he creates abstract visual experiences, exploring a range of methods to effectively deconstruct the institutions that define painting and art-making. Sabri builds his paintings through a meticulous process of layering and spatial stacking, infusing materials and patterns to create sensual textures and juxtaposed forms.
Yona Arts founder Paula Tin Nyo writes, "As artist and laborer of Malaysia, Sabri Idrus has forged a physical, aesthetic and conceptual statement of a nation about to undergo massive change...each work behaves as a hammer pounding our feet to the ground, even as lofty plans would give us flight."
Experience the work of Sabri Idrus in the new Gajah Gallery: a 6000 sq ft, re-purposed warehouse space situated between the historic port of Tanjong Pagar and the financial center of the city.
