Mohd Khairul Izham was born in 1985 in Maran, Pahang and graduated with B.A. of Fine Arts (Painting) from Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) Shah Alam, Selangor, Malaysia. He is known for his approach on broad subjects of past and memories with complex layering and conscious masking, leaving viewers with residue from the process of recollection. Staying true to his enigmatic, peculiar and evasive style, this artwork portrays a traditional malay wooden house in a dark whimsical setting. The house is seen floating among roots, branches and leaves in monochromatic colours, luring his audience into his unique imagination.
