Haris Rashid

Bringing a fresh change to our guest selection, today marks our first show that we feature a painter in our midst. He’s a young man from Kedah who’s making waves in the Malaysian art scene; Haris Rashid!


Haris is a 23 year old painter based in Kuala Lumpur and graduate of The One Academy in Sunway. During school he won his first poster design contest and when the whole process brought him joy, he knew this was his calling.


Haris doesn’t have a specific medium to call his favourite, and he uses a mix of colour pencils, acrylic, watercolour and pigments for his work. He’s still trying out new surfaces - with most of his work done on wood or pressure textured paper. That being said, do not be surprised to see Haris experimenting with street art, clay sculpting and others to keep his creative juices flowing.


During Deepavali 2014 whilst doing a commission for Publika, Haris was completing his first ever Ranggi. Soon after completion, his Ranggi work was highlighted and featured in Instagram’s official account. In 2015, young Haris managed to hold his own exhibition called Beauty In The Beast. A critically acclaimed exhibition centered on raising awareness of the endangered animals of Malaysia.


Later in October, Haris will be opening a gallery and featuring a group show, curated and organized under Studio Mekar (a studio which Haris founded himself). A total of 20 artists from different art disciplines will be showcased. Called Elusive; it will be held at Black Box, Publika. October 22nd will be the opening night.


For the record, Haris scored 11!
