Mohd Khairul Izham was born in 1985 in Maran, Pahang. The distinct artist approaches broad subject of past and memories with complex layering and conscious masking, leaving the audience with residue from the process of recollection. Some of his recent shows include: Malaysian Emerging Artist Award (2011), Deceitful Truths (2011) and Dischromatic (2010).

Mohd Khairul Izham’s artworks are known to be mysterious and produce elusive ambience in his subjects. His usage of bright colours shape artistic silhouettes in an expressionistic manner with details, contours and crevices that are accurately presented. This piece is a collection of bright pastel hues, scattered evenly and balanced out with darker shades, allowing each art enthusiast to interpret the painting on their own.
