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. Some of his recent shows include: Malaysian Emerging Artist Award (2011), Deceitful Truths (2011), Dischromatic (2010). Khairul Izham lives and works in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
A magnificent, eye-catching work this is. Using a black backdrop, the majestic, gold-coloured tree takes centre stage, exhibiting a multitude of pastel-hued birds are seen perched all over the tree. If you take a step back, you can discern a beautiful chaos.
