M. Zain had the greatest admiration for village life, and he highly cherished it. He was known for depicting the landscape of the seaside and fishermen villages. Kampungs are the panoramas of the charming scenes of nature. Although it is plain and simple and it is always filled with divine beauty, artist M. Zain captures it in this piece. All in all, this piece is filled with romanticism and brilliant execution. M. Zain was a self-taught artist. He first was touted the “Fisherman’s Artist” by Frank Sullivan when he had his first solo at the Samat Art Gallery in 1972.
