This alluring piece by the wizard, Ismail Latiff sees a tranquil blue hue spread across the paper. His hallmark, the moon is ever existent in his artworks. This piece seems to draw the viewer in, taking them to a faraway place as they look into the distance. His paintings seem therapeutic in a way, as they provide the viewers with a mysterious calmness. Ismail Latiff is also a master at creating the perfect b lance in his pieces, just like nature herself – there is nothing too much or too little about it.
