Khalil Ibrahim, the master storyteller of the East Coast produced another masterpiece with this work. Titled Cherating, these serene work highlights the artist’s favourite subject at the venue that was extremely close to his heart. Kampung women take centre stage here, decked in their traditional attire that is painted with vibrant, colourful hues. One can discern that Khalil used earthy and cooler colours to accentuate the seascape milieu.
