Tan Rahim is known for his impressive experimentation with abstraction in the batik medium. He was largely a self-taught artist, committing himself to painting in the early 1970’s. This work features figurines in movement, almost like they’re dancing in shades of red and blue. His batik paintings are notable for their striking similarity to the colour-field painting movement in 1960’s New York.
