Kwan Chin, ever the story teller, tells his tale of observations through the batik medium with a touch of Nanyang style. This particular artwork depicts a congregation of villagers, mostly ladies all huddled up together engrossed with a tiny bird on the palms of a woman clad in traditional attire. Kwan Chin’s works are vibrant, and undoubtedly attention grabbing, which is his hallmark. His batik pieces are rich in colour and his work is known around the world, having been exhibited in London and Miami.
