Artist Biography

Chemist by training, watercolor artist by passion—those locutions might be precise to illustrate Azman Md Nor’s journey as a watercolor artist. Popular among enthusiasts as Azman Nor, fewer know that he was graduated from UiTM Shah Alam with a degree in Applied Chemistry.

Nonetheless, his 5-year-old kid's inner passion never fades. For the last three years, driven by his passion in the watercolor medium, Azman Nor started his journey to be a self-taught watercolor artist, despite not having any particular professional watercolor training beforehand.
