One can’t help but admire Zaim’s work. The sheer labourious and intricate details of his pieces comprise a synergy of elements that unite in perfect harmony. Zaim sees his artworks as a living art form, where it can be fragmented, rearranged and viewed separately or as a whole. The artist wants his viewers to freely interact to his pieces and even formulate their own interpretation. His paintings are well composed, uses bold colours and texture to compliment the serene and tranquil setting of the sampan in the dock creates an irony and a sense of adventure, signifying the danger and violent state, as the sampans would be at sea. Zaim ability to imply and suggest life, conflict and chaos without portraying them has become a trademark of his work.
