Malaysian Painters

I have never been exposed to local arts (in terms of paintings, sculptures, etc.). European artists such as da Vinci, Monet, Van Gogh and even Rembrandt (it amazes me that I spelled the name rightly). I know that I know these painters because their names were being mentioned in lots of movies such as, Dan Brown’s famous movie adaptation: The Da Vinci Code, Renoir (a French movie about the famous French painter, Renoir) and a lot more.

However, I have not (and ashamed) that I do not know any of our local Malaysian painters up until Dr. Carmen introduced us to some of the most notable painters in Malaysia. Abdullah Ariff, Yong Mun Sen, Hoessein Enas, and Tay Mo Leong were some of the names that were introduced to me today.

Abdullah Ariff’s artwork are more towards landscapes or nature. These are some of his famous paintings that are currently being sold in two art gallery, which are in Henry Butcher Art Auctioneers, Kuala Lumpur and Christie’s in Hong Kong. Abdullah Ariff

Same goes to Yong Mun Sen’s artwork although from what I can see, he loved to paint more on buildings as we can see on his incredible paintings below. More of Yong Mun Sen’s artwork can be viewed through this link : Yong Mun Sen

Hoessein Enas’ works are more on portraits and all of them are incredible.

As of Tay Mo Leong’s artwork, it is more to a modern/abstract looking. I am probably one of the worst person to describe art (but appreciates them!) but judging from his work other than the rest, Tay Mo Leong is probably like Picasso of Malaysia (to me).

I am looking forward to go to an art gallery now and be like any other art connoisseur by standing in front of an art and think what does the painter think and feel when he is painting his masterpiece. Anyway, thank you for reading!
