Bold and beautiful is what comes to mind at the sight of Ismail Latiff’s Belangkas Rimba No. 1 & No. 2 (2005). The strong strokes of colours are eye-catching and inviting. Again and again, the artist never fails to create and illusion, depicting a fragment of his imagination which makes one wonder of the narrative behind the painting. Of course, his signature moon sits on the top centre elegantly as the swirls of various tints of colours create a strong striking motion-like visual. He has set a significant benchmark on marking his own identity through his prominence use of colour combination, art style and technique.
