This special piece by renowned artist Datuk Ibrahim Hussein was executed using ink on paper, yet it’s so meticulous that it could be mistaken for his oil or acrylic works. His mastery in abstract art is evident with this piece. Datuk Ibrahim Hussein, affectionately known as Ib, was born in Sungai Limau, Kedah, in 1936. He studied at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in Singapore in 1956 and then moved to London, where he continued his studies at the Byam Shaw School of Art and the Royal Academy Schools. He travelled to France and Italy after being presented with an Award of Merit scholarship. He also founded the Ibrahim Hussein Museum and Cultural Foundation.
