Bold and beautiful is what comes to mind at the sight of Ismail Latiff’s Panggung Nusantara…Ratu Mulia. The strong colours of various reds are eye-catching and inviting. Again and again, the artist never fails to create an illusion that makes one wonder whether his art is a depiction of the galaxy or just merely an unknown fantasy of his mind. His signature moon sits on the top centre faintly 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 the prominence of his use of colour combination, art style and technique.
