Ismadi’s love for nature and his hometown were the inspiration for the The Inderapura series, shown through spontaneous, gestural and scratch effects he employs on these expressionistic paintings.
The Pahang-born artist was a UiTM graduate who obtained his Master’s degree at De Monfort University, UK and has over 20 years of experience in the art industry. Using the relationship between humans, nature and animals as his muse for abstract paintings, his technique involves the
throwing of paint at the canvas before he wipes, scrapes and perfects the image he wishes to express. He recently had a solo exhibition at the Museum of Asian Art, University of Malaya from the 10th of January to the 2nd of February 2014, which was almost sold out.
