These marbles look so real that you want to reach out and touch them, feel the texture and hear the slight sound as they clash against one another, and hear and feel the crackle and wisp of the scrunched up paper beneath them. Maulan’s works are often based on still life and nature, but they are all visually appealing. This everyday scene from his life proves to be compelling on canvas due to his expert techniques.

Latif Maulan was born in the quiet village of Kampung Lebu, Pahang. This unique artistic talent was discovered during his early childhood. As he had no formal training in art, he nurtured his own talent in his home and then started to travel and work in the US, Europe and Australia. Maulan is considered a budding artist as his 2011 exhibition held at the National Art Gallery of Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur proved to be an immense success.
