Born in Kedah, A. B Hassan is the brother of famous Malaysian painter, A. B Ibrahim. Having somewhat similar styles, A. B Hassan excels in creating and romanticising local landscapes, simply by using the watercolour medium on paper. The artist creates a very nostalgic and sentimental mood, reminding one of days gone by or the feeling of missing home after having been away for a long time. This particular piece depicts a kampung house established at the beachside, with tall coconut trees swaying and shading the house. A. B Hassan shows immaculate skills in this painting, with the use of calming colours and strokes, making it almost lifelike. Just like his brother, he possesses prowess in re-enacting mood and feeling as well as beautiful rustic landscapes on paper.
