Silk Batik Painting by Fazryn anuar 
My name is Fazryn Anuar
I create and specialise in sustainable silk Batik painting. My art is informed by both contemporary and modernist painting. Using traditional batik materials of water-based dyes, wax and fabric, colours are applied in layers starting from light to dark. More control is gained over the intensity of the dyes by applying them by paintbrush as opposed to submerging the fabrics within the dyes themselves. This revolutionary approach allowed to create detailed, refined images with dramatically enhanced tonality, shading and depth. I explore pattern and repetition, not for the sake of pattern and repetition but for the dream-like experience it offers me.

Not only it is part of my culture, but Batik technique is a ticket for a fascinating adventure which takes me to discover immense possibilities of creating very personal images with a marbling effect. This technique gave me the opportunity of working with a wider range of colours. 

I dedicatedly with batik technique hoping to promote its wonderful flowing qualities and luminous colour in a world which was at the time dominated by rigid traditions in what qualified as art.


Each section of the Modern Batik piece is toned separately using a technique called fragmentation. This modification adds increased background depth, broadness and a richer palette of colours to the artwork, allowing control of detail and richness comparable to that of any acrylic and watercolour painter. 

It is then sealed with wax using a brush or a tjanting (tool to dispense the wax) to prevent other colours from changing it (known as wax resist). Once the piece is completed, the wax is removed to reveal a bold palette of colours. 


I love to use a combination of hand srawing and painting with digital painting technique and textures. I would say my style is quite organic even though I choose to capture geometric man-made shapes. It can be detailed and often delicate, although I am not afraid to go bold when it's needed! The geometric shapes are drawn free-hand with melted wax without the use of a ruler. I love colour and I enjoy spending time experimenting with different colour palettes.
