A.B Ibrahim was a self-taught artist and was one of the founder members of Persatuan Pelukis Melayu (Society of Malay Artists, Malaya) that was based in Singapore. Although he was based in Alor Setar, he spent most of his time in Penang where he sold his paintings along Penang Road and Chulia Street. The artist is well-known for his rural landscape and this work is evident of that. A.B Ibrahim brings to life a fishing village, paying attention to minute details such as the sea breeze that tickles the coconut fronds, the reflection of the clouds on the water, etc.
