One of Malaysia’s foremost artists, Ahmad Zakii Anwar never paid attention to academics, yet he always knew that he would do well in life. After a stint with an advertising agency, he shifted his focus towards painting. His portraits covered often controversial political and social issues, something that was not easy to get away with, in a conservative country. Edge of Obedience reveals the various taboos existing in the country and the challenges to freedom of artistic expression, through the eyes of this internationally-popular artist.
