Khalil Ibrahim’s obsession with the human figure once again prevails in these ink on paper sketches. This group of human figures in their most organic form, stripped of appearance, and identity, sharing a lively moment together. Throughout his career, the artist had been documenting observations of groups of humans, particularly of the East Coast, highlighting women, fishermen, movements, or just everyday living in rural Malaysia.
