Tan Rahim Zahici, born in 1934 in Perak, is known for his impressive experimentation with abstraction in the batik medium. He was largely a self-taught artist, committing himself to painting in the early 1970’s. His batik paintings are notable for their striking similarity to the colour-field painting movement in 1960’s New York.
