Yusuf Arakkal’s early abstract paintings depict city dwellers with a vibrant array of colours. Over time, his focus shifted to social issues capturing the everyday lives of the dispossessed in urban areas. Through somber shades and textured canvases reminiscent of weathered walls; he portrayed their poverty and resilience. Arakkal’s artworks, like this one often feature solitary figures evoking contemplation on the human condition. Arakkal’s palette embraces earthy tones occasionally accented by touches of yellow or crimson as observed in this work.
