Description: The beach — a peaceful getaway; a serene outpost, away from life’s various troubles. Here, Zainal Abidin Musa (some call him Monet of Malaysia) transplants the viewer to Malaysia’s great locales of interest, and with it, the various emotions associated with it. Just take your time, and soak it all in. With a deep interest in art, Zainal Abidin Musa enrolled at Institut Teknologi MARA to pursue a degree in Fine Art. He graduated in 1983 with a promising career as an artist, having won an award from the Malaysian Young Contemporary Artist competition — one of Malaysia’s more prestigious art competitions. Formerly working in advertising, he has now returned to his first love — painting, once again taking up the brush, with no signs of slowing down or stopping. He has been active since the 2000s, with entries in various group exhibitions, as well as having had solo exhibitions in Kuala Lumpur.
