Staying true to his dark, mysterious and elusive style, this depiction of a traditional malay wooden house is darkly whimsical. The house floats among roots, branches and leaves in black and white, and lures the viewer into the artist’s dark imaginations. Born 1985 in Maran, Pahang, Khairul Izham approaches broad subject of past and memories with complex layering and conscious masking, leaving the audience with residue from the process of recollection. He graduated with B.A. of Fine Arts (Painting) from Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) Shah Alam, Selangor, Malaysia.
