Tajuddin Ismail has always had a knack for abstract art. Abstract art is never constant in their message, meaning different things for different individuals. As in this simple piece comprising basic lines and shapes tinted in gallant, outstanding colours of pink and orange, as well as black and blue. Tajuddin Ismail successfully captures the eyes and mind of the viewer. This piece may seem simple, but it has that ability to beckon the viewer to dissect the true meaning behind it. This is a piece that requires the audience to take a longer look, to reflect on this artwork.
