To say Long Thien Shih ’s works provokes a conversation would be an understatement. Throughout his career, Long has managed to immortalise social and sexual revolutions of the 1960s and the the idealogical conflicts of the 1980’s through his medium of choice. Even the global and technological developments of today are reflected in his work. Seen in his Fishing Village in Jiram, is a tranquil fishing village in Kedah. The artist uses soft tones and keeps the details focused on the boats.
