Mazlan Noor Along, born 1955 was a former staff of the Dewan Bahasa and Pustaka (The government body responsible for coodinating the use of the Malay language and literature) for 42 years. His journey in arts and poetry travelled with him until his retirement where he is now a full-time painter.
“Art is journey. We encounter several things in the journey that we can’t explain in words and thus we paint as much as we feel. The expression images and lines traced artistic essence. Quavering intuition and illustrating what is hidden is to be served, observed and pondered by the people” - Mazlan Noor Along, Literary and cultural activist, painter, poet and designer.
