Zulkifli Yusof

About Zulkifli Yusof 

Born in 1962, he is a graduate from MARA Institute of Technology (UiTM). He is known for his installation pieces. He continued his studies in Manchester Polytechnic’s Faculty of Art and Design, United Kingdom.

He first took notice of art when his father gave me a copy of Art Today back in 1979. Since then, his passion in the arts grew by leaps and bounds where he will then continue to set a career in the discipline.

Zulkifli is also known to be very versatile and explorative artist of whom the work carry satirical message. Besides painting, he works in other types of medium including sculptures and installation works. Recently, Zulkifli’s solo exhibitions are including Writing Power (2011), Negaraku (2010), Malaya series (2009) and Icon (2008).
