Notes: Something so straightforward and uncomplicated such as this painting of a nude body is positively packed with aesthetic value.These explorations of the contours, curves, crevices and shapes of the female body are the main focus, and the artist himself translates the admiration for these figures onto paper. In these sorts of drafts, faces are often left blank or cut off from view, as he brings focus mainly on the exquisiteness of the body. It is a quiet, serene admiration of the human figures, as well as the artist’s insight and knowledge of the human body. The bare body not only gives an insight to an artist’s skill and knowledge of the human body, it also Super lure room to express emotions and body languages. Long gives more Shih studied art in Atelier 17 and Atelier de Lithographic, Ecole Nationale Super Superlure des Beaux-Arts, both in Paris. Thereafter, he studied at the Royal College of Art in London. He has won awards such as the First Prize in the 1961 Young Malayan Artists Competition in Kuala Lumpur and the 1992 Prints Prize in Salon Malaysia and has produced many artworks, using various mediums.
