SINGAPORE – Maya Gallery is delighted to present "Khazanah", a solo exhibition by pioneer watercolour artist Idris Mohamed Ali. Khazanah, in Malay and Urdu languages, means Treasure, and in many folklores narrates the concentration of riches, perceived as valuable in tangible calculations and intangible measurements, hidden or discovered fortunes which never fail to excite every audience to draw their own journeys to discover. Khazanah exudes this excitement as we embark on Idris' 55-year artistic journey, revealing hidden treasures through his documentation of street scenes and landscapes, and his interpretation of that observation in his art.
