World cinema often cites “great paintings” as a source of inspiration for its production, design, and art direction. In Malaysia, this practice only began in animation with the inclusion of art history in formal training curriculum, with Malaysian animations mostly taking inspiration from traditional visual arts such as wayang kulit and batik, with auditory influences from gamelan and ritualistic dance drama. Join artist, designer, animator, writer and film director Hassan Abd Muthalib as he highlights a selection of Malaysian animation shorts that demonstrate the influence of traditional Malaysian art and music, as well as Western art. It will be followed by clips of world animation to demonstrate instances where traditional art has been adopted, but through stylistic innovations, allow for the progression of the form.
