Tajuddin Ismail’s artworks are labyrinths of metaphors and underlying meaning. He gains his reputation for his amazing abstract art that draws inspiration from natural forms and landscapes. His distinctive style has lured many art enthusiasts into his realm of innovative, complex artistry. To Tajuddin, art is about making a visual connection with the eyes of its beholder.
Tajuddin uses a mixture of lines, colours and geometric shapes to portray the time and space of nature in a poetic visual language that is well structured and lyrical. While some artists stick to certain medium such as acrylic on canvas to create their works of art, Tajuddin uses several such as acrylic, oil pastel, graphite, and cement paste on paper canvas, wood canvas and wood panels.
