O Sculpture Studio, in partnership with Arteesan.io, is thrilled to announce the launch of
LOKGAM, a breathtaking exhibition by master sculptor Raja Shahriman, which will run from 6th May to 4th June 2023, with support from Penang Art District. LOKGAM is the first installment in
a series of five exhibitions, each exploring one of the five elemental elements: Metal, Wood,
Water, Fire, and Earth.
This innovative collection features Raja's intricate and stunning metal sculptures, inspired by the

human form while also delving into broader themes such as gender, identity, society, and the
natural world. Each unique sculpture offers a distinctive character that captures Raja's artistic
