Ibrahim bin Abdul Bakar or better known as A.B. Ibrahim was born in 1925 in Alor Setar, Kedah. The self-taught excelled in creating and romanticising local landscapes only with the watercolour medium. The artist creates a very nostalgic and sentimental mood, reminding one of days gone by or the feeling of missing home after having been away for a long time. His prowess in re-enacting mood and feeling as well as beautiful rustic landscapes on paper made him one of the most well-known artists in Kedah until this day. Seen here, is a tranquil milieu of a junk sail amid smaller boats and a mountain rage as its backdrop.
