The late Khalil Ibrahim was a Malaysian artist who graduated from the prestigious St. Martin’s School of Art & Design, United Kingdom in 1964. He is known for his drawing, watercolour, and acrylic artworks with styles ranging from realistic to abstract. With over 50 years of artistic experience, Khalil Ibrahim has held solo and group exhibitions in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Switzerland. Most of his works centre around figures and are heavily influenced by East Coast fishermen and women. This particular etching on paper artwork in black and white uses shapes and forms that are left for the individual interpretation of his viewers.
