Sensual and enigmatic are two words that fit this painting well. The artist captures here a profile of a nude male figure, his face undisclosed. The piece oozes absolute allure, sophistication and depth, as well as spirituality. “It’s painting the body from the inside out,” Ahmad Zakii Anwar says. “One of the most important things in my work is the sense of something absolute. I want to reflect the order of life, as well as internal beauty,” he said. “I want to paint something more spiritual. I want people who look at the work to feel inner peace.”
