Description: Self-taught Ronnie Mohamad is known for his raw and raffish figuratives in charcoal, this in monochrome with a pale bluish-grey tint. With his son as a model, he captures the simpler times of childhood once upon a time not too long ago, even before the time of Tamagotchi and now with the games and cartoon-loaded mobile phones which have become virtual nannies to today’s children, while their parents, well, pore over their own handphones, too. What are we coming to? The old ways of a simple game of blowing bubbles in the village or park evoke fond memories, instead of the modern highly mechanized or digitized toy whatchamacallits. Ronnie Mohamad has been painting since the age of 17. His career got a shot in the arm when he took part in the Hong Kong Art Fair in 2016, the same year Tourism Malaysia promoted him in Helsinki, Finland. He had his first solo, An Exploration, at the Purplehouz Gallery, Petaling Jaya, in 2013. His works sometimes are exhibited at Segaris Art Centre, National Art Gallery Malaysia (KL Biennale), and Galeri Z (in the prestigious collection of Zain Azahari, a staunch, strong supporter / patron of art).
