This rendition by Ismail Latiff departs from his usual ethereal works, depicting a landscape work of sweeping blue hue. 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 balance in his pieces, just like nature herself – there is nothing too much or too little about it.
