A Variation on Things Imperfectly Known

Artist Profile

Khairulddin Wahab’s (b. 1990, Singapore) paintings weave narratives drawn from anthropology, environmental history, and post-colonialism in Singapore and Southeast Asia. Working from found images and iconography derived from his geographic and cultural contexts, Khairulddin creates visual tableaus that allude to our historico-political encounters with the natural world. He graduated with a BA in Fine Arts from LASALLE College of the Arts (2014) and has exhibited in local and international exhibitions, including Biennale Jogja 2019, S.E.A. Focus, and State of Motion 2018.

He was the winner of the 2018 UOB Painting of The Year award and recipient of the 2014 Winston Oh Travel Research Award.
