Duo by Amri & Aqim

Symbol & Gesture employ pictorial and body language as a subject of expression in paintings and drawings. As forms of non-verbal communication, symbols and gestures are a part of our everyday lives. They both serve the purpose of delivering information and facilitating understanding.
Gesture refers to the movement of a part of the body. It is frequently used to convey sentiments, ideas, emotions, or attitudes, and has been ingrained into the way we express ourselves daily, both unconsciously and consciously. Similarly, symbols come in the shape of marks, signs, characters, and imagery. They are designed to represent or indicate an instruction, warning, ideas, and more. We encounter symbols every day, from emojis on our phones to road signs, and restaurants. Essentially, they are everywhere in modern society.
