Born 1985 in Maran, Pahang, Khairul Izham approaches the 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), Dichromatic (2010). Khairul Izham is known to portray an enigmatic and elusive mood in his subjects. His brushes of colour create rough silhouettes in an impressionistic manner with details, contours and crevices accurately captured. Through his masterful manipulation of media and form, Izham’s oeuvre transcends the confines of the canvas, becoming a visceral dialogue between materiality and abstraction. His artworks embody a poetically dissonant amalgamation of discordant textures, oscillating between chaotic spontaneity and meticulously calculated intention.
