Ismail Latiff’s artworks are the epitome of vibrant, alive and energetic. Same can be said with this piece, featuring a harmonious blend of various colours, resulting in a masterpiece of motion on canvas. These are the types of sceneries that one encounters only in dreams or in the figments of the imagination, but very difficult to put into words and even tougher to revisualise. There is no better place than our dreams, and there is no better artist to paint those dreams apart from Ismail Latiff. He usually incorporates folklore, myths and legends into his artworks and the end result is usually a flurry of fantastical colours of absolute magic as depicted in this painting. This piece will leave art enthusiasts fascinatedly confused and curious, allowing them to explore the work through their own imagination and perceptions.
