Mohd. Baktiar Bin Zainol Abeedin aka Bach Zainol (b. 1979) received his Masters degree in Fine Arts from LaSalle College of the Arts in 2012.
A lover of symbolism, surrealism, expressionism & graphic arts in all forms; be it paintings, drawings, printmaking or street art - Bach likes to experiment with his medium of expression. He produces raw, emotive works stemming from personal experiences and traumas past and present, plucked straight from his thoughts and imaginations with purposeful disregard to the perfection of figurative form. With paintings, drawings and prints being his main escape, Bach also communicates through poetry, music making, animation and installations.
Bach is also interested in the study of the psychology of art, Jungian theories, the therapeutic & healing art forms, outsider art and scenic art.EXHIBITIONS2000
