This painting by Ismail Abdul Latiff may be similar to the previous one in a glance but to the discerning eye, it is two different artworks that embody vivid colours of blue with varying waves or twirls. An aspect that remains in most of Ismail’s works is the moon. It can be observed that the moon in the first painting is in view with slight twirls teasing it. Ismail Latiff is a Melaka-born artist who trained formally in arts at MARA Institute of Technology. His artworks of both the mystical and abstract kind are known locally and internationally.
