Beautifully done with watercolour on paper, Mokhtar Ishak explores the allure and essential physiognomies of the beautiful views that make Malaysian countryside – the mountains, abundant trees, the villagers as well as the untouched serenity that comes with it.

For Mokhtar Ishak, inspirations may come in various forms, it is the opulent, charming and picturesque landscapes of the East Coast fishing village to be specific. With precise brush strokes and vibrant colours with soft hues, he brings these sceneries to life, doing its natural exquisiteness justice.

Mokhtar Ishak is a self-taught artist, the only education in art was an art course organised by the Ministry of Youth and Sports in 1973. His works are exhibited and showcased by the PETRONAS Gallery in Kuala Lumpur as well as Bank Negara in Langkawi.
