Beautifully executed in watercolour on paper, Mokhtar Ishak explores the allure and essential physiognomies of the beautiful views that make Malaysian countryside – the ocean, abundant trees, the sunny atmosphere as well as the untouched serenity that comes with it. For Mokhtar Ishak, inspirations may come in various forms, it is the opulent, charming and picturesque landscapes of the East Coast fishing village to be specific. With precise brush strokes and vibrant colours with soft hues, he brings these sceneries to life, doing its natural exquisiteness justice.
