Mother & Child represents a selection of a series of water colours done by Yusof Gajah in celebration on motherhood and the family. The images show how the mother tenderly teaches and cares for her child.
Also included in this delightful book are Yusof’s sketches, mostly done during his travels. They present a rare insight into the artist’s mind and give us a glimpse of the ideas that would later form his paintings.
Yusof Gajah is the master of colours, fantasy, imagination and style… Sometimes he manages to contain the whole world in only one elephant, sometimes he really challenges the viewer’s imagination… at ﬁrst…the picture looks simple. Then they discover more and more details, leading into a pure adventure. Arild Braastad, Ambassador of Norway
