COLLECTION/DISPLAY:

It took Dato Ibrahim Hussein 11 years of hard work and toil -- and RM 5 million -- to manifest his dream of "the art museum within the enchanted forest in Langkawi." Only 13 trees were sacrificed to build his stark modernist sculpture rising out of the lovely grip of the pristine jungle of Gunung Machinchang. To date 25 international artists from 15 countries have pledged their support to the foundation -- both in the form of contribution of work or expertise, often in exchange for Dato Ibrahim's own paintings.

Currently on exhibition is a collection of Dato Ibrahim's works in conjunction with the foundation's November 1998 opening. The above picture is a sample.
