About the ArtworkAn experienced charcoal portrait artist by profession, Mior Rizzuan Rosli took the plunge with this challenge to use a medium that was unfamiliar to him and to paint with colours, both of which were not his forte. However refusing to be held back by the fear of the unknown, Rosli tackled his Büffel figurine with great gusto, choosing to paint a recognisable motif in Asian culture- the much prized koi carp, which represents prosperity, perseverance and good fortune.
Moving from portraiture to painting fish was indeed a step in a different direction for the artist, who has been doing charcoal portraits for over ten years. "Painting the koi fish with a gold background is a symbol of how I can develop as an artist with a positive attitude. It represents my hard work and determination, to keep looking ahead, and with a little luck on my side, to reach my destination... my very own golden gate!" Entitled The Living Jewels Rosli claims he chose the theme of koi fish painted on a golden bull "to represent determination and success", the very same qualities the artist himself strives towards.
