Raduan Man favours a combination of media to project his imaginative approach in making art - printmaking and painting using a multitude of materials such as wood, aluminium and canvas - adapting skilful printmaking techniques onto canvas. A fine example of his printmaking-inspired piece is illustrated here in Warrior I, an abstract work that combines stencilled imagery of war apparatus such as hand grenade, helicopter, and aircrafts as well as words and random shapes with layers of green paint painted over.
Raduan Man graduated with a BFA at UiTM in 2000 and followed it up with a double Masters, first in Painting at the University of Wolverhampton, UK in 2003, and then in Printmaking at the Camberwell School of Art, UK in 2006. He won the Juror’s Award in the Tanjong Heritage Art Competition in 2002. Since his first solo called Fresh Markings at NN Gallery in 2003 where he showed works of oil, acrylic and woodprints, he has had seven solo shows namely Living Metal in 2012.
