Shafurdin Habib loves the Malaysian scenery – whether it is the countryside or historical buildings. He is one of the specialists that holds a high respect for the Malaysian wide open, and this is regularly the subject of his artistic creations.

Splendidly done with only the use of watercolour, this painting of the Penang Ferry is gorgeous on its own due to his exemplary hand, the clever play of light and shadow, as well as the balance between subject and space, this piece really is truly unique
and stunning.
