This study was conducted is done qualitatively to interpret the real situation through the artwork of the artist. The main focuses of the study discuss the artistic and narrative elements of storytelling such as formalistic, beliefs in the character of Huminodon figures, and art criticism statements of visual art. The study also wants to unravel the Sabah Folklore that influences spirits that can be displayed in the work of artists. The results of the study can also provide an explanation of the delivery of emotions, feelings processed in a brushstroke, and the use of colour in the canvas of his work. Meanwhile, the narrative story is processed in a visual work through the movement of the spirit of the Huminodun figure. The implications of the study show that there is a relationship between the production of works using the application of formalistic aspects in the work and the cultural perspective. This includes messages conveyed through a philosophy of life, spirituality, social criticism, and self-interpretation in the form of experience or self-expression. Therefore, there are elements of the belief in the spirit of harvesting rice of this community that they inherited from time immemorial to the present. Thus, the painter can re-display in the form of visual art paintings.
