Choo Git Man or GM Choo was born in Perak in 1939. He is an artist who thrives in his art works, especially his batik paintings. GM Choo lived in Terengganu for almost 30 years and has been strongly influenced by the richness of this traditional art form. Most of his pieces are inspired by the fishing village life and sceneries that surround it. This particular batik painting depicts the atmosphere of a fishing village, where fishermen are seen rowing their boats into the sea amongst other fishing boats.
