Choo Git Man or GM Choo was born in Perak in 1939. He is an artist who has a knack in portraying the daily life through his batik paintings. GM Choo lived in Terengganu for almost 30 years and has been strongly influenced by the richness of this traditional art form. Most of his pieces are inspired by the fishing village life and sceneries that surround it. This particular batik painting depicts the atmosphere of a bustling small town, where locals are seen huddled under several food stalls. Above, one can discern clothes being dried on a cloth liner outside the shop lot windows.
