Fast establishing itself as one of Malaysia’s most exciting art groups, Dikala Jingga is staging its third 3 person art show. Drawing strength from their common Bugis heritage, ( Tellutau translates as three people in that language) the artists steer this series of work towards social and political inquiry relying abundantly on the art language of surrealism and pop culture.

Zul’s professional art career began with his paintings of the human form. These days he concentrates on painting animals. Whereas in his earlier series his animals were endowed with auspicious symbols and qualities (still seen in the magnificent red and silver arowanas in “ Good Luck #6 and #7”) now they bear messages of subtle cynicism and greater immediacy. His animals represent the virtues and not so virtuous nature of humans especially those entrusted by society with high office and power. Through the titles of paintings such as “ Cow tu Lembu” the artist reveal his contempt for human’s ignorance while in other paintings like “Bersih” and “ Masa Untuk Perubahan” his art speak of the excitement, drama and anticipation about Malaysia’s newly altered political landscape.

Tellutau is the start of Suddin’s new series of paintings. Not confined to any particular issue, Suddin paints his favourite subject - the human figure, etching his subjects with strong emotions, stirring colours and defining brush strokes. The musicians in his paintings convey the music they play merely by their bodily gestures. The loudness of the music, the viewer has to imagine by looking at just the colours which also allows him to almost feel tone, vibration and harmony as in “ Versa #2”. Hidden beneath his evocative figures and gestures is the artist’s message of education and self improvement born out of Suddin’s background as an art teacher.

Picasso described art as the lie that enables us to realize the truth. True to this spirit, Nurazmal attempts to document his childhood past from an entirely unexpected vantage point. In this, Nurazmal’s interior acts only as a silent and indifferent backdrop. With a whiff of both humour and sinister the artist plays with images that have passed and vision of things to come to transport the viewer to his imaginary realm of space and time. In “ Floating-Floating in My Room” the dark and macabre also lurk, this time behind the shadows and light with his ever present alien or cartoon character thrown in for good measure.
