Concocted by Jolly Koh in 2011, ‘Landscape’ is a medley of wonderful and harmonious hues, supplemented by different intensities and tones. It possesses an otherworldly atmosphere, bearing the hallmark of Jolly Koh’s works. Inspired by his own mind and skills, his style of painting is purely derived from his fantasy world and he morphs it into a tangible form with the combined use of oil and acrylic. This arresting landscape is an incorporation of nature and his prowess as a romantic and lyrical painter. Jolly Koh’s paintings are frequently exhibited in KLAS’s art auction – among his highest grossing painting is the ‘Blue Birds, 2005’ from Sale XXVI, hammered after a bidding war for RM105,956.80.
