Tajuddin Ismail’s artworks are labyrinths of metaphors and underlying meaning. He gains his reputation for his amazing abstract art that draws inspiration from natural forms and landscapes. His distinctive style has lured many art enthusiasts into his realm of innovative and complex artistry. To Tajuddin, art is about making a visual connection with the eyes of its beholder. The title of the painting quite literally captures the visual depicted. A magnificent mountain stands proudly in the foreground, painted in an ombre of red, while hanging over it is a long red bridge that seems to carry on for miles.
