Azizan Paiman: New works at the gallery

Dawn Raid Operation, London 1981

Dawn Raid Operation, London 1981

The paintings of the “Ali Baba and the 40 thieves” are now exhibited at the Gallery. They are georgeous… Full of poetry and meanings.

About this artwork: “In a ‘dawn raid’ on the London Stock Exchange on 7 September 1981, the premiere British rubber and oil palm conglomerate in Malaysia, the Guthrie Corporation Limited, was taken into local control in less than four hours. This was the most dramatic Malaysian acquisition of a foreign company during the restructuring of the country’s post-colonial economy during the 1970s and 1980s, and the Guthrie Dawn Raid remains a celebrated but, at the same time, contested juncture in contemporary Malaysian memory”

An artwork by Stephane Blanquet for Hollywood

Recently, Stéphane Blanquet was commissioned by Paramount Pictures to create an artwork inspired by the recent blockbuster “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”. The film is directed by Jonathan Liebesman, and stars Megan Fox, Johnny Knoxville, Pete Ploszek, Noel Fisher, Jeremy Howard, Alan Ritchson, Danny Woodburn, Tony Shalhoub, William Fichtner, and Will Arnett. It is distributed by Paramount pictures.

Blanquet created an astonishing artwork which is very much in line with his current aesthetics. It portraits one of the 4 values of the TMNT: Honor. This artwork and a few others by artists from around the planet will be used by Paramount to promote the movie.
