Notes: This piece comes across as strong and purposeful, as the artist tries to make a statement regarding an issue about nature. Despite how strong it comes off as, the message is very unclear, ambiguous and closed, and it is only up to the viewer what to make of it. He captures a quiet, serious mood in this piece, as he captures a regal Bengal tiger staring into the distance with constant vigilance, as if watching a prey or looking out for one. The shadowy, dim palette resonates well with the subject, amplifying the rigor of the tiger’s persona. The graphically comprehensive lines that the artist habitually incorporates into his painting are also present here, adding a more uniqueness and complexity to this piece, contrasting beautifully with the equally graphic depiction of the Sumatran tiger. In entirety, it seems as if the tiger is stalking his prey from the bushes. Raduan Man graduated with a BFA at UiTM in 2000 and followed it up with a double Masters, first in Painting at the University of Wolverhampton, UK in 2003, and then in Printmaking at the Camberwell School of Art, UK in 2006. He won the Juror’s Award in the Tanjong Heritage Art Competition in 2002.
