Datuk A.Samad Said: Tulisan ke Lukisan

Filed under: Artsy & Craftsy — agnes @ 4:14 pm


I had early lunch today to view National Laureate poet Datuk A.Samad Said sketches at Petronas Art Gallery. Awesome ink sketches on napkins. A simple man of few words when he is in the bookstore, this is the place I frequently bump into Datuk A. Samad Said. I stay silent and move quietly if he is around, not that he is frightening but overwhelmed by his humbleness despite his fame and influence as a National Laureate. In fact he is a Living National Treasure. Visit Bibliobibuli blog post for more details. Photo of Datuk A. Samad Said is available here.

National Laureate poet Datuk A.Samad Said showcases his hidden artistic talent. For the first time ever, 100 of his sketches will be displayed to the public. See his use of visual language to express in-depth feelings which cannot be conveyed by words alone.
