Rahmat Ramli is a Malaysian modern and contemporary artist who was born in 1964. While little is known about the artist, rural Malaysian life seem to be his area of interest when it comes to his works. The setting of this painting is depicted at a traditional Malay market, where women are clad in the traditional baju kebaya and baju kurung. The ‘Kota Bahru Market’ illustrates the norm of the everyday women about their routine, buying supplies for cooking.
