Ajim Juxta

(Full name: Raja Azeem Izham)

b. 1983 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Better known in the art scene as Ajim Juxta, Raja Azeem Izham is a young multi-talented visual artist who’s found his true calling in art, despite formally receiving his academic training in Architecture. His repertoire of works spans several mediums, including pen and ink, found-object sculptures, and paintings on canvas. As an artist Ajim Juxta is not afraid to experiment with new media types, or explore new ways of using mediums he’s already adept at. The training he had in architecture, however, has not gone to waste. This young artist’s artworks are akin to organic blueprints created to make sense of a world seen as having gone wrong in many ways. Young Art Taipei 2016 marks a major milestone in this young artist’s career, having been short-listed for this year’s Young Art Award, his first appearance in an art fair outside of Malaysia.

ERYN, the name young visual artist Winnie Cheng is better known as, is Malaysia’s 2015 UOB Art Award Gold Medal Winner in the Emerging Artist category. The fantastical worlds she imagines become the backdrop for her layered paper-cut works, exploring various themes and stories conjured by this artist’s creative mind. Inspired by fantasy literature the artist has been fond of since childhood, the lush alternate reality settings, created from a combination of mediums utilizing various papercutting techniques, provide the viewer the opportunity to briefly escape the real world, and contemplate the themes of selfdiscovery frequently presented in ERYN’s artworks.
