Ismail Latiff is a Melaka-born artist who trained formally in arts at MARA Institute of Technology. His artworks of both the mystical and abstract kind are known locally and internationally. Having started off his career in advertising before switching to fine arts, his philosophy of life and work is “Art is Life and one of the best introductions to art is Nature.” Exactly portrayed in this painting is nature and solitude, almost like some sort of paradise. He manages to make this painting seem like it is saturating with an aura of wonder, with stunning splashes of colours that blend together.
