The elusive Malay Bargali: from figurative to abstract
"I try to express concealed feelings and desires through reduced, figurative line work. I closely work on what is happening around and its relationship with myself, drawing simple images which are a mix of ordinary and surreal." Malay Bargali
When looking at the breadth of Malay’s work, we can see genuine emotion and a sense of self-expression through storytelling. Using various mediums, spanning across a number of stylistic approaches, each piece is individually intriguing in its allusiveness.
From his exaggerated and disproportionately stylised figures to his more witty pen-drawn linework through to his current explorations of abstract mark-making, it’s evident to us that Malay is a talented artist who isn’t afraid to experiment in conveying his own feelings.
