Ismail Mat Hussin was born in Kota Bharu, Kelantan. He developed an interest in batik at the mere age of 12 years old and picked up his batik skills from well-known artist Khalil Ibrahim and art teacher Yusoff Abdullah. His career began as a violinist for Radio Televisyen Malaysia Kota Bharu, but he left and decided to put his all into painting.
