NORWANI MD. NAWAWI
Textile artist and designers gain their inspirations from experiences in life, which are inter twined with their formal and informal education backgrounds. Every artistic creativity depends on the artist'S experiences, sensibility and artistic concept. Skill is also important, as it helps to create interesting works of art intergrated with knowledge of techniques that the artist possesses. The captivating nature of textile art is evident when colours are being used to create motifs which are repeated to create patterns. This enables a flat surface to be developed into an illusion of three-dimensional forms. The intellingence in using the techniques and chosen materials to create an artwork, resides in the artist's mind, before a satisfying piece may be produced.
