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…

Di satu ketika hampir menjelang tengah malam, seorang wanita yang jiwanya bergelodak dan mungkin sedang tenggelam dalam hidupnya, tenggelam dalam permasalahan diri, jiwa dan cinta mungkin, melangkahkan kaki di lorong Art Row di Publika .. dan waktu itu Galeri titikmerah sedang mempamerkan lukisanku 'lemas' dia melihat dan rasa amat terharu dari sudut hatinya kerana yang aku pamerkan betul-betul menyamai apa yang sedang dirasai oleh wanita tersebut.. dia menyatakan apa yang you lukis betul-betul apa yang sedang terjadi terhadap dirinya waktu itu. Aku betul betul rasa tidak menyangka, mungkin kebetulan dari imaginasi dan pengalaman melihat penderitaan kawan-kawan.. lalu dia mengambil keputusan untuk memilikinya sebagai kenangan mungkin atau dijadikan sebgai inspirasi terhadap dirinya untuk menjadi lebih tabah menjalani kehidupan.........
