Born in Indonesia, Iskander Syaifudin uses acrylic to create striking portraits that carry heavy social connotation and powerful messages to the self. Emotionally charged and layered with conceptual intricacies, the artist creates complex compositions of stroke and colour to communicate a style akin to a stream of consciousness. Infusing a distinct method to his madness, the spontaneity of his stroke is balanced by his inclusion and attention to detail, with much of his conceptual stories hidden within the layering of his back and foreground. Titled introspectively and inciting deeper thought through both image and its connotations, the works of Iskander Syaifudin are entirely immersive in both aesthetic and conceptual forms.
