From an early age, art has been a part of Yusof Majid’s life. He grew up in England, and had an appreciation for art at a young age. Born in 1970, Yusof Majid’s creative work was predominantly inspired by the 1980s. The artist attended the Chelsea School of Art, England from 1988 to 1993. Yusof sees his paintings as a naive surrealist extension of his inner self, emptiness and euphoria in landscapes of memory and dreamscapes. In this piece, Yusof Majid portrays a dreamlike reality where two men clad in white are standing atop the peak of a mountain where a white tree stands perched, so tall that it’s depicted almost touching the skies, with a crescent moon as its background. Such a brilliant illustration this is.
