Dzulkifli Buyong (1948- 2004)

He was a self-taught artist and was acknowledged as a child prodigy when he produced some of his famous paintings at a very young age. At the age of 16, Dzulkifli, had already won numerous awards including gold medals from the then Raja Permaisuri Agong, Tengku Budriah Tengku Ismail and Prime Minister Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj "For the best overall entry" during the "Young Artists' competition." When he was 17 he won third placing in the National Poster Drawing contest. He was a familiar figure in the VI Art Room (now the School Museum) and there was a mural on the wall many years ago that was attributed to him.

Tuan, jika tuan ada lukisan berjudul 'Panorama' saya pula memiliki lukisannya berjudul 'Si Tompok'. Wah, sentuhannya menyetuh dan halus.
