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…

Upgrading Drawing: First time using Charcoal

Tepak Sireh 2008 aku peramkan sekejap, dulu aku biase melukis guna pensil, tibalah masanya untuk meng'upgrade' drawing dengan menggunakan Charcoal. Hari ini dalam sejarah pertama kali aku menggunakan Charcoal, memang rase teramat kekoknya lebih lebih lagi gune batang charcoal yang empat segi tu abih tangan hitam dibuatnyer, mule2 rase macam tak jadi pas tu rase best pulak tengok stroke stroke tu, shading gune sapu pakai jari.

Compress Charcoal RM13.80, Woodless Charcoal RM2.80 sebatang, juge beli di Nangyang di Jalan Petaling Street.
size A4, main stroke jer.. herot berot ..takder scale scale pun.... spontan selama beberapa minit setelah bosan buat tepak sireh.....
