Who are the CEO’s of the GLCs? Who are their partners? … As usual, Azizan Paiman’s artwork put us to our critical thinking. His artwork, though it may seem at times talking about the Malaysian scenario, but it is actually generic, it happens in everywhere in the world. Perhaps this artwork is to serve as a reminder that there should not be any nepotism or cronyism in the organization. …what is your interpretation?
Blanquet is finalizing the 4th (out of 6) lithograph print for the portfolio he is doing with MEL Publisher. Will be printed shortly at the IDEM Paris workshop.

Malaysian contemporary artist Azizan Paiman has his works and his “Inventory” exhibition at Fumanart featured in The Edge Financial Daily 04/04/2016. Click here to the article.
We are now working with our friend, exciting artist Azizan Paiman, on a new project to take place in our gallery near Kuala Lumpur. Titled “Inventory” it will an exhibition with artworks and various items that have had an importance in the life of the artist and in his practice. This show will be a unique opportunity to learn more about Paiman of course but also about ourselves.
In this era of international turmoil where our minds and thoughts are confused by the calls of so many fake prophets (faux prophets) and wrenched ideologies, isn’t it time to go back to fundamentals, think again about who we are and where we want to go, and choose our values as part of humanity? That is exactly the journey Paiman invites us to embark upon.
The show will take place at the gallery space from this Sunday, January 31st to Sunday March 6th. We will be hosting an opening party on Sunday from 3 pm to 6 pm. The exhibition will then be open by appointment only.
