Affectionately known as Ib, Datuk Ibrahim Hussein was born in Sungai Limau, Kedah, in 1936. He studied at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in Singapore in 1956 and later moved to London to further his studies at the Byam Shaw School of Art and the Royal Academy Schools. After being presented with an Award of Merit scholarship, he travelled to France and Italy. He was also the founder of the Ibrahim Hussein Museum and Cultural Foundation. Datuk Ibrahim excels in the art of abstract, portraying a futuristic vibe as he complexly expresses his creations in various forms, dimensions and colours.
