Syafiq Hariz is a multidisciplinary artist and illustrator. His graphic quality approach to his paintings denotes a preference in a style that has, over the years, expanded into a cynical and satirical social commentary. His use of reference to excessive pop culture consumption resonates in a way that at a glance, feels carefree yet brimming with underlying tones that scrutinise its long-term effects on society.
Syafiq graduated with a Bachelor (Hons) in Fine Art from UiTM Shah Alam, majoring in painting, in 2009. He received the Dean’s List awards while at UiTM, and the Honorable Mention, at the MRCB Art Award, by National Art Gallery, Kuala Lumpur in 2008.
