Rahmat Ramli is a Malaysian Asian Modern & Contemporary artist who was born in 1964. While little is unknown about the artist, rural Malaysian life seems to be his area of interest when it comes to his works. This painting depicts a scene at a beachside setting. Women, clothed in traditional baju Kebaya and Kurung, dominate the painting, illustrating the norms and every day of women with a simple life, possibly in the countryside.
