Working from home? Malaysian artist pencils his way through this new reality

Haslin's 'Living Room', the first in a new series that he is working on during this movement control order period. This pencil series will focus on the different spaces in his house. Photo: Haslin Ismail

Contemporary artist Haslin Ismail has a few new works uploaded on his Instagram account, which are a departure from his usual paintings and mixed media works usually exhibited in galleries.

In these colour pencil drawings of a living room filled with everyday objects and brimming with life, a woman breastfeeds a baby, and beside her, two other children – and a cat – stretch out on the floor. The second one also zooms in on this space, with the kids watching television and their books strewn on the floor.
