Ismail Abdul Latiff has been described as ‘one of the greatest escape artists ever to wield the brush’. His realm is of the enchanted and enchanting, a utopian world built on love, beauty, purity and power. Ismail’s works reflect a combination of movement and mythology. For Ismail, he only sees himself as a traveller who embarked on a conquest to bring the inner space, texture, colour and beauty of the natural world together and interpret them onto paper and canvas. Art, as he perceived, is life and one of the best introductions to art is nature.
