Israfil Ridhwan's latest exhibition, Spaces In-Between, offers a captivating exploration of everyday life through the lens of oil painting. His ability to capture the emotional ambience of seemingly ordinary scenes sets his work apart from others.


Ridhwan's works portray the gaps and moments of respite in our daily lives, infusing these spaces with deep emotional resonance. These intervals, often overlooked or taken for granted, become the focal points of his sombre yet vibrant paintings.


His works also draw inspiration from the Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, particularly the work titled If Touch is What I Desire, Cut It Off, 2023.
