Quick Overview

Unlike the earlier more pointed approach of the political cartoon where satire blends with the surreal to depict specific events and idiotic responses to those events, with these new works, the artist delves into the broad grey areas in the socio-political and economic make-up of modern Malaysia and how it impacts on the every-citizen.

Details

Unlike the earlier more pointed approach of the political cartoon where satire blends with the surreal to depict specific events and idiotic responses to those events, with these new works, the artist delves into the broad grey areas in the socio-political and economic make-up of modern Malaysia and how it impacts on the every-citizen. For example, the large J. Dawn Raid Operation, London 1981 commemorates the legend of the 1981 nationalistic coup of bringing home national assets but dwells on the grey murky area of the accepted or expected take-over ethics as far as corporate practices are concerned. Paiman depicts the players in the legendary intrigue as squadrons of marauders, single-minded in purpose, filled with nationalist righteousness but with the usual cynicism of the contemporary brings us down to earth in here and now where that self-same national asset has fallen foul to mismanagement and other sad abuses.
