Khalil Ibrahim graduated from the prestigious St. Martin’s School of Art & Design, United Kingdom in 1964. He has held solo and group exhibitions in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Switzerland, with most of his works center around figures and are heavily influenced by East Coast fishermen and women.

Khalil is often drawn towards having women as his subject, in his sketches he details the features of his subjects. This gives us an insight to the thought process of the artist before he creates his various works of art.
