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.
Primary colours and flashes of white light stream across the canvas from up to down. Urgent streaks of light seem impelled by an unseen force. This dynamic canvas is flooded vibrant with energy. The artisan uses his imagination to explore the relationship between time and speed.
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.
“Colour is the key. The eye is the hammer. The soul is the piano with its many chords. The artist is the hand that, by touching this or that key, sets the soul vibrating automatically.” – Wassily Kandinsky
