Description: The Dalang Series has proved to be Nizar Kamal Ariffin’s more popular series, with one Whispering World fetching RM16,344.60 for a similar sized work at the KLAS auction on June 26, 2016. The same auction also holds his record, RM22,400, for a Siri Dunia work at its auction on March 22, 2015. Muted, pale colours serve as the backdrop, with an eclectic mix of sharp angles and curved lines whirling and crashing onto one another. Nizar became active when he joined Senika (Pahang Art Society) in 1984 and became a resident artist at the Taman Seni Budaya in Pahang, and the next year, he had dual first solos in Kuantan (Hyatt Hotel) and Kuala Lumpur (City Hall). He graduated with a BFA at the Universiti Sains Malaysia in 1986 and moved to Kuala Lumpur in 1993. He joined the Conlay Art Colony commune in Kuala Lumpur in 1998. In 1999 and 2000, he received Honourable Mentions in the Philip Morris Asean Art Awards, Malaysia competitions.
