yours, truly..Shazwany Aziz is a mixed media visual artist from Singapore with a focus in printmaking and drawings.

I received my degree in Fine Arts from Lasalle College of the Arts, where I graduated with honours. I also managed to pick up one art award, and a travelogue award.

Trained formally as a printmaker, today I am experimenting with abstract expressionism, using drawing and printmaking tools. This had me expand my horizons and go into new areas of painting and printing that I have not yet explored and exhausted. And within the series of my most recent work, the abstract language is explored by way of textures, tones, shapes and patterns within a composition. In working within restrictions, I found freedom and personal expression in the pursuit of continuity of the creative process. Removing the representation and creating something that tells a story without an observational subject matter was freeing.

As an artist, I have had a number of exhibitions, and have been featured in a variety of local media outlets, including profile interviews with D+A (Design and Architecture) Magazine, Suria MediaCorp, Berita Harian and CulturePush.com. I am also a member of Singapore Contemporary Young Artists (SCYA) and Printmaking Society Singapore.

In printmaking, I am endlessly fascinated by the sensory exploration of the printmaking process: the sight, the smell, the feel, the sound, and (also very rarely, even) taste. It influences me to carry on my learning, where I prefer to learn in a direct manner: hands-on, learning a skill as it is done by, making mistakes, and under the tutelage of professionals who are experienced, knowledgeable and active in their fields.

As well as being an artist, I am also formally trained in multimedia design, where I occasionally build the very odd website, editing videos and practicing some javascript coding. In discovering new ways of working, methods and being able to solve technical problems has been satisfying in both fields of my work. My happiest moments have been the hours spent in the studio…
