A doe sits perched in the midst of nature, and birds are flying high up in the sky. This piece is simple yet endearing. It also showcases Syed Thajudeen’s keen observation of nature and animals.

With only ink, he captures their details, posture and his sensitive attention to detail speaks volumes about his artistic abilities.

Convincing his parents to let him study art, he eventually attended the Government College of Arts and Crafts in Madras. His works are exhibited by Petronas, the National Art Gallery of Malaysia and the Singapore Art Museum.
