Famously known as the self-taught artist based in Alor Setar, A.B Ibrahim spent a large amount of time in Penang, selling his artworks along Penang Road and Chulia Street. Other than being one of the founding members of Persatuan Pelukis Melayu (Society of Malay Artists) in Singapore, his work “Malacca Gate” is also a permanent collection of the National Art Gallery in Kuala Lumpur and the Royal Museum in Alor Setar. Within an instant, this watercolour on paper artwork will leave you in awe – from the picturesque scenery where the sky meets the sea to the details of the dragon-like boat.
