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

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…

Tepak Sireh 2008 first stage

Hari ni mula buat Tepak Sireh lagi, tak letak tajuk pun lagi, bersize 43 cm x 58.5 cm. Seperti biasa .. mula dengan lakaran kasar dengan pensil 2b jer atas kanvas.Lepas tu aku mula dengan menyapu bahagian-bahagian gelap bayang subjek dengan menggunakan warna gelap, bukan hitam: Raw Umber + Prussian Blue. Pastikan lihat bayang-bayang subjek itu dimana letaknya dengan teliti, supaya senang untuk meng'captured' cahayanya datang dari mana nanti. Sapu sahaja warna warna gelap itu secara kasar dibahagian-bahagian yang gelap tapi sedikit teliti.

Dah siap untuk first stage tepak sireh utk hari ini, esok kite sambung lagi bagaimana utk sapuan lapisan pertama.
