Abdul Latiff Mohidin is an artist that likes to invent his own rules, to create new things. This piece is strong, dramatic, orderly and precise in terms of brushwork and composition. This series explores the relationship between shapes, figures, colours, balance, perception and the mind of the artist. The resulting abstract art is the representation of the artist’s contemplating and dedication to this piece of art. Latiff’s works bear a distinctively cosmopolitan outlook in terms of the successful development of a modern abstract visual language and a sustained exploration of world art and literature. An avid traveller, the artist’s travels, specifically to Ubud, Bali inspired this unique monochrome watercolour piece, executed meticulously.
