Masuri Mazlan Singaporean, b. 1990
Masuri’s studio practice has long oscillated between sculpture, as well as painting and installation work. His core practice concerns the effect of materiality and the transformative potential of everyday industrial materials into painting and/or sculptural media. This interest is informed by blurring distinctions between art and decoration through the expansive parameters of the non-representational to circumvent these structured binaries. His sculptural paintings and objects tap on industrial materials like silicon, polyurethane, and gypsum as a conduit towards larger narratives of personal identity, aesthetics and embodied memory.
Graduated with BA Fine Art (First Class Honours) from LASALLE College of the Arts accredited by Goldsmiths, University of London. The multidisciplinary artist and co-founder of Tekad Kolektif was awarded with the prestigious Goh Chok Tong Youth Promise Scholarship Award in 2016 that merits his artistic talent and many contributions to the society. He has completed 300 hours of community work and was also the only Singaporean recipient of the coveted International TAKIFUJI Art Award by Japan Traffic Culture Association in 2017.
