The Road Less Travelled

The Road Less Travelled

Self-taught artist Syahbandi Samat’s fifth solo exhibition, The Road Less Travelled, is described as a mini-review of the artist’s career that began in 2011, when at the age of 19, he was selected as one of the five winners of the 2011 Malaysia Emerging Artist Awards (MEAA). Thematically, Syahbandi’s artworks selected for this exhibition focus on his more introspective works, surreal renderings filled with metaphors and symbolism, as he comes to terms with past traumas and articulates the insights he’s gained on his continuing journey of self-realisation. Presented by Artemis Art in partnership with  HARTA Space, we find out more from Syahbandi himself, and Ivan Gabriel, a co-curator of the exhibition with Artemis Art.
