'Rhythm of the 21st Century' - Raja Shahriman Raja Azzidin











Raja Shahriman’s artworks are strikingly surreal and grotesquely beautiful at the same time. In creating the sculptures, he employs the Malay blacksmithing traditional methods but expresses the material in contemporary cosmopolitan context, whereby the forms incorporated in his sculptures allude to the nature of mankind. Rhythm of the 21st Century runs from 29 October 2009 till 24 January 2010 at GALERI PETRONAS, Level 3, Suria KLCC. Admission is free. For more information on the exhibition, please visit the Galeri Petronas website at: http://www.galeripetronas.com.my/
