Yusof Ghani’s renowned and highly coveted series, the Siri Tari portrays the movements and lines of people in subtle yet vibrant hues that are visually appealing. He captures the fluid motions and elegance using dance painting to portray the human behaviour. Bridging realism and abstraction, this artwork by Yusof Ghani sees delicate silhouettes of subjects in their movement and form, converging towards the centre. Lines and sketches on this artwork were executed freely and spontaneously in a liberated and haphazard manner.
