A tribute to Jeri Azahari, Malaysian Pop Art Artist

 Galeri Chandan, Bukit Damansara pays tribute to Ahmad Azahari a.k.a Jeri Azahari, A Malaysian prominent Pop Art Artist.

A legitimate art form, Pop Art is one of the major art movements of the twentieth century. Characterised by themes and techniques drawn from popular mass culture such as advertising and comic books, pop art is widely interpreted as either a reaction to the then-dominant ideas of abstract expressionism or an expansion upon them. Pop art, like pop music, aimed to employ images of popular as opposed to elitist culture in art, emphasizing the banal or kitschy elements of any given culture. It has also been defined by the artists use of mechanical means of reproduction or rendering techniques that downplay the expressive hand of the artist. Pop art at times targeted a broad audience and often claimed to do so. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pop_art)

   

Jeri’s tribute is featured in “SEMANGAT CHANDAN  : CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS FROM THE LAND OF GRACE” currently exhibiting in Galeri Chandan, Bukit Damansara, Kuala Lumpur.

One response to “A tribute to Jeri Azahari, Malaysian Pop Art Artist

  1. Art that removes the material from its context and isolates the object. A return to hard-edged composition that represents a response by the artist, Troy. The art is an impersonal reflection of reality, defused with personal symbolism of abstract expressionism. Inspired by the experiences of living within American culture.
