Latif Maulan - An artist on a voyage of self discovery 
By Gerry Long


Born in 1974 in the state of Pahang, Malaysia, in the quiet village of Lebu, Latif's early childhood was spent with his family in their bamboo house near a small river. Those early years invoked in him a great love of nature, particularly the Jungle and river where he spent so many happy hours with his family and friends.
It was with the help of two of his sisters that he initially commenced to draw, and not surprisingly his  first drawings reflected his love of the landscape that surrounded him.
He started Primary school in 1981 studying at Skolah Menengah Kebangsaan, Lebu and then continued his education at Skolah Menengah Kebangsaan, Bentong.  Although initially in the Science stream, his keen interest in art soon prompted him to transfer to the Art stream.
He finished high school in 1991, but due to financial constraints, had to forgo further studies at university level. Then followed a somewhat chaotic period…

Medium mempercepatkan kering untuk cat minyak



Ini pulak medium liquin yang aku guna dengan mencampurkannya sesedap rasa bersama cat minyak sebelum disapu di atas kanvas. Dulu aku cuma gune linseed oil campur turpentine oil untuk cat minyak. Aku teringat sewaktu aku melawat sebuah art gallery di Cairns Australia aku terjumpe dengan seorang otai photorealism artist yang lukisannya sereal gambar, dia bagitau aku cube kamu gune medium ni, so aku pun cube, best pulak memang cepat kering giler secepat keringnya cat akrilik. Aku biase beli sebotol 250ml yang berharga 43 ringgit 90 sen juge beli di NangYang art store. Kadang kadang oleh kerana sama tahap kekeringannya dengan cat akrilik aku campurkan sedikit dengan linseed oil.
