Notes: The lovely landscapes that the Malaysian countryside has to offer certainly proves as a muse for Shafurdin Habib, as he captures the beauty of nature at its best, untouched and flourishing. Utilising his virtuosity with watercolour, he paints on paper very skilfully the hills, the trees, the skies, the sands and the seas along with villagers. Although it is a simple depiction of the sceneries of a humble setting, Shafurdin fastidiously details every single bit and form of this piece, wowing the viewers with its complexity. Shafurdin Habib was born in Kampung Basong, Perak, in 1961. A hobby he had as a boy, which was drawing in all his exercise book, turned into something big as he developed a real passion for art. Many of his influences are derived from Khalil Ibrahim, whom he befriended after he moved to Kuala Lumpur to pursue art.
