The maestro of this colourful rhapsody is none other than Ismail Abdul Latiff. One familiar with his work would notice his signature circle that deck the canvas, drawing the attention of the viewers. It is a symbol of balance, explained the artist, an embodiment and search to be one and whole with the universe. Ismail Abdul Latiff was born in Melaka in 1955 and was trained formally in arts at the MARA Institute of Technology. Ismail’s paintings always seem therapeutic in a way, as they provide the viewers with a mysterious calmness. He is also a master at creating the perfect balance in his pieces, just like nature herself – there is nothing too much or too little about it.
