A familiar theme, the East Coast. Obtaining inspiration from his upbringing in Kelantan, this piece features a group of village folk clad in vibrant sarongs. Khalil utilises his skill in and complete study of the human figures to bring out movement while simultaneously using bold and contrasting colours to bring about richness to this piece. This work was formerly showcased at Galeri Tangsi’s exhibition. Khalil Ibrahim graduated from the prestigious St. Martin’s School of Art & Design, United Kingdom in 1964. He has held solo and group exhibitions in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Switzerland, with most of his works centre around figures and are heavily influenced by East Coast fishermen and women.
