Viewing this painting is like staring into the vastness of space. It’s a spectacle of dark and light blue colours, with Ismail Latiff’s every present moon in sight. This piece seems to draw the viewer in, taking them to a faraway place as they look into the distance. His paintings seem therapeutic in a way, as they provide the viewers with a mysterious calmness. Ismail Latiff is also a master at creating the perfect balance in his pieces, just like nature herself – there is nothing too much or too little about it.
