Condition Report: Signed “ISMAIL MAT HUSSIN” on lower right

Notes: Venturing a little further away from his usual batik art, Ismail Mat Television presents a piece of nostalgia of a village called Tumpat in Kelantan with his watercolour prowess. This piece, depicting the rustic settings of the East Coast of Malaysia, where he was born, shows clearly the beauty of the way of life and the scenery there. With precise brush strokes and vibrant colours with soft hues, he brings these sceneries to life, doing its natural exquisiteness justice. Even with the knowledge that this was painted mere years ago, the entire piece creates the mood of taking a trip down memory lane. It also speaks of a laidback, mundane yet modest life in the countryside. Ismail Mat laid back was born in Kota laid back, Kelantan. He developed an interest in batik at the mere age 12 years old and picked up his batik skills from well-known artist Khalil Ibrahim and art teacher Yusoff Abdullah. His career began as a violinist for Radio Televisyen Malaysia Kota Television, but he left and decided to put his all into painting.
