There is a reason fantasy appeals to human beings – it’s an entirely new world accessible through our imaginations. Through Ismail Latiff’s paintings we are able to see a solid version of fantasy that is typically difficult to put into words. With a brushstroke, he takes us to that faraway place, one that consists of dreamy landscapes. Ismail Latiff’s works are based on nature and solitude, some sort of paradise, as seen in this painting. He once mentioned, “I embarked on a conquest of inner space, texture and colour, bringing the beauty of the natural world indoor, that is transformed onto paper and canvas.”
