Fitriah Roslan, also known as Yuyu, is a full-time artist whose artworks centre around the exploration of impasto, graphics, linguistic, and her environment. Often incorporating nature into her work, she also examines the diverse connections between man and nature.
In her first solo exhibition ETHEREAL, which is loosely inspired by the concept of RPG (role-playing games), 28 textured artworks depicting individuals taking adventures through different enchanted realms are on display. Using textured oil paints, Fitriah rearranges familiar visuals and content into three-dimensional paintings that aim to stimulate the human senses, hoping to takes the viewers on an imaginative journey and embrace the ethereal.
A graduate of the Bachelor of Fine Arts (Hons) from UiTM Shah Alam, Fitriah has been actively involved in group exhibitions and art activities in Kuala Lumpur since 2016. During the day, Fitriah works as an art technician at an international school, while her evenings are devoted to painting.
ETHEREAL is scheduled from 25 July to 3 September with the opening launch on 30 July, Sunday, 2pm.
