"Mystical Manoeuvre"

New Straits Times - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Wednesday, July 4, 2007

An exhibition of contemporary Islamic art is being held in memory of the late Mohammad Din Mohammad as a tribute by his family.

The exhibition is being held at the Main Lobby, Balai Berita, The New Straits Times Press (Malaysia) Berhad.

The "Mystical Manoeuvre" exhibition, which is on until July 27, displays some of Mohammad’s best acrylic paintings and assemblage sculptures. They were inspired by his passion for Sufism (Islamic mysticism).

A graduate of Singapore’s Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, the late artist has had 20 solo exhibitions and more than 100 group exhibitions around the world.

The Malacca-born artist-cum-traditional-healer, who died last May at the age of 52, is survived by his 47-year-old wife and six children.

His wife, Hamidah Jalil, said the collections displayed were from his art gallery, which housed over thousands of artworks and antiques, including Islamic manuscripts, kris and gemstones.

"I’ll continue his legacy," she said.
Daily, from 10am to 6pm. Admission is free.
For further details, contact Sherifah Din Mohammad at 012-3120109.
