Born in Terengganu in 1939, self-taught artist Mohamed Zain had a huge admiration for village life, which he highly cherished. He was known as the “Fisherman’s Artist” by Frank Sullivan during his first solo at the Samat Art Gallery in 1972. He was also popular for depicting the landscape of the seaside and fishermen villages. Brilliantly captured in this particular piece is the simple yet breathtaking scenery of a fisherman hut at the beach. All in all, this painting is an amazing execution of skills and usage of bright and earthy colours.
