Notes: Anybody familiar with Ismail Latiff’s works may even describe him to be an artistic wizard, and by wielding a brush, he creates magic on paper. The colours seen here are in a fantasy twirl, moving about here and there, floating and breezing through the paper as if Ismail Lati was showing the viewer a magic show, or opening a window to peer into his beautiful imagination. His 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, which is transformed into paper and canvas.” The contrast between light and dark colours and the exuberance with which they flow make it all the more like an experience than just a viewing, as it is heavily saturated with an aura of wonder. Ismail Lati 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 o his career in advertising before switching to fine arts, his philosophy of life and work is “Art is Life and one of the best introduction to art is Nature.”
