This unique batik painting on cotton is hand drawn using the ‘canting’ and ‘tulis’ methods and painted by Alim. Each painting is personally signed by the artist. Like gliding through a mystical journey under the ocean, Alim entices his viewers with yet another elusive abstract painting on silk.
Abstract images bubble to the surface of this painting, each suggesting something familiar yet impossible to define. The artisan shares of a glimpse of an imaginary world close to his heart. Dreams and memories take place in the form of this batik painting.
By adopting the Batik Tulis technique, Alim translated his artistic interpretations using a canting, a traditional tool with a small spout filled with hot wax that functions like a pen to resist dyes. All Batik paintings go through wax-dye-boil method, making each art a worthy treasure.
