Set in the 1970s, there is an air of nostalgia. Painted by the river, Yusof Abdullah translates the essence and ambiance of a lovely, warm evening day into his artwork. It reminds one of being close to nature, away from the hustle and bustle of the city life and of the good old days where one sought solace in the midst of nature, teamed with Yusof Abdullah’s expertise in his techniques.

Yusof Abdullah was inspired by his teachers from the tender age of ten, he became a teacher after finishing school. He started mixing his art expressions and his passion for teaching, and in turn, he was bestowed the State Level Guru Aktif Art Teachers Award in 1984 in acknowledgement of his contribution the Art Education.
