Combining both his love for batik and fascination for the nude human body, Khalil Ibrahim pieces together this beautiful batik composition of various figures in different poses, each showcasing the contours, shapes and lines of the nude body. Slightly different from his usual earthy, warm, brawny tones, Khalil ventures into a cooler mood and atmosphere, with contrasting colours making an appearance every now and then.
