Malaysian artist uses evocative power of colours to express nostalgia for the past

In these grey and grim pandemic days, contemporary artist Kide Baharudin’s colourful world of kampung life and reflections on the good ol’ days in Malaysia work like an ideal pick-me-up to brighten up the mood.

Kide’s nostalgia-tinged excursions into the country’s storied past are prominent in his new solo exhibition Sa-Hari-Hari at Segaris Art Center in Kuala Lumpur. It is the young artist’s first gallery-based show, which showcases his full artistic range like never before.
