About Harri Ribut
Harris Ribut was born on Carey Island, Selangor on September 8, 1951. He started off as a street-painter back in 1976 which lead to a job as a paste-up artist at several publishing houses,until he ended became an Art Director. A few years stint as a reporter for a newspaper lead to the post of sub-editor. He started painting full-time in the early nineties from the house of APS to the Artist Colony at Jalan Conlay KL.
Harris first encounter with his "fat lady" on canvas was just by fate, his mother to be exact. The solid mass of the woman body with their graceful movement were his muse. "An anecdote for worldly misery" noted Harris. Humorous at first look but a sincere perspective of reality. Through their daily chores and activities, dance and Chit-chat series that he usually deals with, he managed to convey beauty and subtleties of movement of his fat ladies. Big but not heavy, fat but not ugly; Passion rather than lust.
