As an artist trained in Interior Architecture, Dato’ Tajuddin Ismail certainly knows what difference the balance between form, colour and space will make to a masterpiece.

Never straightforward and obvious with the messages he embeds into his artworks, Tajuddin Ismail has once again inspired curiosity with Innerspace. Innovative and complex, he stimulates the mind of the viewers while making a connection with them at the same time. What Tajuddin Ismail wishes to incite is not an understanding of a singular, standard message from his artworks, but to evoke various feelings and thoughts – after all, what a person takes from an abstract form is completely subjective.
