By using simple sketching and painting techniques, Yunizar has perfected the ability to portray various objects that surround his daily life with complete freedom of interpretation and form making. Like the work of a child, his work can be pure and crude at the same time, emerging spontaneously from his unconscious mind. This current lot is an extension of his most recent works which are almost devoid of all recognizable objects.
"Yunizar has actually explored the scribbles since 1998, but only recently has he developed them further, 'to fulfil a need for expression.' This reminds us about Automatism, the surrealist technique involving spontaneous writing and drawing, which is done without conscious aesthetic judgment, but rather pure expression.
Yet, Yunizar's recent works also appear reminiscent of graffiti-like pencil work in Cy Twombly's works. Indeed, American artist Twombly along with the German artist Anselm Kiefer and the French Impressionist Paul Cezanne are among Yunizar's favourite artists. He proudly admits that he 'explores the spirit in their works,' and does not deny that his art has been influenced by the development of his taste towards his admired artists. The artist believes that his art is for the most part a matter of taste, in addition to his technical skills and conceptual ideas."

Yunizar's work is often considered to reflect the artist's adamant struggle towards completely free expression, but the artist admits that his art is mostly determined by his tastes - tastes which have been influenced by what he has been exposed to in the world of art.
