Khairul Anwar Fazlur a student at Saint Joseph’s Institution International (SJI) Singapore believes he has developed a unique art technique which merges drumming and painting.

Speaking exclusively to FutureRising, upcoming artist Khairul talks us through the methodology and intentions behind what he calls ‘Playnting’.

First off, why the name ‘Playnting’?

Ah, it’s a simple idea that’s just stuck. By using the drumsticks as paintbrushes, I feel as if I’m having more fun and playing whilst painting. I was really inspired by Ushio Shinohara, a Japanese Neo-Dadaist artist known for his “boxing paintings”. Shinohara lets out his own frustrations on the canvas with boxing gloves, which is similar to how I let out my own emotions when 'Playnting'.
