Born in 1949 in Seremban, 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 and complex artistry. To Tajuddin, art is about making a visual connection with the eyes of its beholder.
Tajuddin Ismail has always had a knack for abstract art. Abstract art is never constant in their message, meaning different things for different individuals. As in this simple piece comprising basic lines and shapes tinted in gallant, outstanding colours of pink and red, as well as white and blue. Tajuddin Ismail successfully captures the eyes and mind of the viewer. This piece may seem simple, but it has that ability to beckon the viewer to dissect the true meaning behind it. This is a piece that requires the audience to take a longer look, to reflect on this artwork.
