Description: KHALIL IBRAHIM (B. Kelantan, 1934) Movement in Red, 1971 Signed and dated Khalil Ibrahim 71” on lower right Batik 91 x 81 cm

Condition Report: Signed and dated Khalil Ibrahim 71” on lower right

Notes: Combining both his love for batik and fascination for the nude human body, Khalil Ibrahim pieces together this beautiful batik composition of various figures in different poses, each showcasing the contours, shapes and lines of the nude body. Slightly different from his usual earthy, warm, brawny tones, Khalil ventures into a more invigorating, stimulating and attention grabbing hue and atmosphere, with contrasting colours of yellow making an appearance every now and then. Born in 1934 in Kelantan, Khalil Ibrahim is one of Malaysia’s most influential artists. He is one of few Malaysians to have received art training at the prestigious Central St. Martins School of Art and Design in London during the 1960’s. He is well known for being a versatile artist using mediums that range from ink on paper to watercolour and acrylic. Using acrylic, oil, water colour and batik, his preference for figuration has led to memorable images of men and women from the east coast Malay fishing villages dramatically set against stark backgrounds of blues and greens and water colour landscapes of east coast villages. Khalil has drawn to observe and depict the hard working lives of ordinary people influenced by his East Coast of Malaysia upbringing. From his earliest works of Pahang fishing villages, thatched roof dwellings, fishermen hauling their catch, to more
