Description: Fawwaz Sukri references modern culture such as comics and old movies (posters), Western and Asian, to comment on human mores and foibles. His focus is usually on heartthrob romance and current events, but Waiting For Him delves into themes like perverse violence and sexual repression. The viewer becomes the voyeur of schopophilia, in this case from the controversial 1960 British psychological thriller, Peeping Tom, which stars Carl Boehm, Anna Massey and Moira Shearer. He uses speech balloons, like American Pop artist Roy Lichtenstein (1923-1997), but in Bahasa Malaysia. The Caucasian woman protagonist, in high anxiety, remarks: Hujan Sebegitu Lebat, Tapi Semuanya Kesilapan Saya Sebab Menolak Permintaan Dia (It’s Raining Heavily, But It’s All My Fault For Turning Down His Request). Although heavily criticised when released as it showed the killer’s perverse thrill of watching his female victims’ expressions of terror as he killed them, Peeping Tom was ranked 27th as the Best British Film by Time Out magazine in 2017.Fawwaz Sukri had his first solo at the Pace Gallery, now called Nadine Fine Art, in 2014. It was called Saturday Matinee, and he followed up with a two-man show called Narration with Indonesia’s Bambang Toko in 2016. He graduated with a BFA, majoring in Painting, from Universiti ITM in 2010, after his diploma at UiTM Lendu, Malacca (2008), both times winning the Vice-Chancellor’s Award. He was represented in Art Expo Malaysia in 2014 and 2017, besides Art Kaohsiung (Taiwan) in 2016 and 2017.
