3/3

In Always Moving: The Batik Art of Sarkasi Said presented by NUS Museum, the exhibition displays 11 of the artist’s best works – tracing the batik extraordinaire’s ever-evolving style and how he rose to become one of the most renowned and celebrated artists in the region. Strongly driven and inspired by his Javanese roots, the 76-year-old has a flair for textile dyeing. Cutting his teeth under the guidance of Indonesian painter-teacher Pak Aznam Effendy, Sarkasi’s works are unabashed, vibrant, striking and almost Jackson Pollocklike. Fearlessly playing with colours and unconventional designs, he can transform a piece of everyday garment into an impressive work of art.
