Ismail’s works showcases a recurrent of fantastic twirls of colours, moving about here and there, floating and breezing through the canvases as if it’s a magic show. The Tioman Garden I, II and III carry a playful energy, each embodying vivid colours of their own and with each painting, one can observe the moon transitions from vaguely hiding to a bold and asserting one.

Ismail Latiff is a Melaka-born artist who trained formally in arts at MARA Institute of Technology. His artworks of both the mystical and abstract kind are known locally and internationally. Having started off his career in advertising before switching to fine arts, his philosophy of life and work is “Art is Life and one of the best introduction to art is Nature.”
