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 kampung, where two ladies and a man is seen clad in traditional attire, resting on a tikar on the ground, with a clay pot of water by their side and a few banana leaves surrounding them.
