The nostalgic part of Malaysia certainly proves as a muse for Shafurdin Habib, as he captures the beauty of unpolished buildings and raw daily lives at its best, untouched and flourishing. Although it is a simple depiction of the sceneries of a humble setting, Shafurdin fastidiously details every single bit and form of this piece, wowing the viewers with its complexity. This is evident in Armenian Street, 2017 and Lanca, 2017, both meticulously displaying the charm of the streets of Penang. Through his works, the artist transports viewers to the scene.
