There is a reason why fantasy always appeals to human beings. It is an entirely new world so easily accessible through our imaginations. Regrettably, these wonderful places are difficult to put into words, let alone paint. Fortunately, we are able to see a proper, solid version of it through Ismail Latiff’s paintings. With a brush stroke, he takes us to that faraway place, one that consists of the landscapes you can only dream about. Ismail Latiff brings these dreams to fruition in this piece. The Queen of the Night…Wild Bird, 2016, features a strong palette of blue and black, interlaced with tinges of yellow and red. The art piece is like a burst of nature’s elements splashing into the sky.
