Akhmal Asyraf comes from the small town of Tampin, Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia. After graduating with a Bachelors degree in Fine Art from the University Technology (UiTM), Shah Alam, Selangor, Malaysia, Akhmal immediately began exhibiting his contemporary works. Using everyday items as the basis for his work, Akhmal challenges you to question whether advertisements and product branding have desensitized consumers.Working in Mixed Media on Canvas and Board, Akhmal wows you with his creative approach. Combining Pop Art with the nostalgia of the iconic advertisements of the early 1900's, his attention to detail transports you back to those simpler times.

 Staying true to his interpretation, this young and innovative artist features contemporary artwork using recycled objects to express his experience with the rapid development of the environment. In his first exhibition in the United States at Arts KUALA LUMPUR- Miami,  Akhmal is humbled to share his creativity and forces us to question our surroundings and ourselves. Left for your interpretation, his work helps us dig deeper and look at our own identity as symbols or as people.
