Abstract

This study focuses on the works of Hashim Hassan paintings. The artist is known for showcasing the essence of the Malay socio-cultural and philosophy that is in-depth within the community.  This research method emphasises qualitative methods such as in-depth interviews, observations, voice recordings and data transcripts. The findings depict the philosophical and Malay socio-cultural meaning of Wau Bulan Terbang Malam (2007); the painting resonates with the classic Malay song by Tan Sri. P. Ramlee. The painting is also an inspiration for the Malay banknotes and coins, the graphic design logo of Malaysia Airlines Berhad and Wau Bulan Monuments.
