Ismail Mat Hussin is known for his combination of warm tones and earthy hues with the use of limited palette, yet he gloriously is able to express the narrative of the life in the rural living. The Wau Series too is no exception to such trademark of his. The illustration of men gathering together to build a traditional Malay kite, wau, is rendered mosaic-like, visibly outlining the images of his subject. The bold texture and visual is captivating, life-like almost.
