Evoking the familiar spirit of Khalil Ibrahim’s beloved East Coast once more, this is a variation of the work of his East Coast Series, where the artist was inspired by his rustic upbringing in Kelantan. Featuring a group of women sharing a lively moment together and a group of men working by the beach. Khalil uses vibrant tones for his subject’s clothing while muted tones make up the sandy beach, the sea, the trees and the rocks.
