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. Some of his recent shows include, Malaysian Emerging Artist Award (2011), Deceitful Truths (2011), Dischromatic (2010). Khairul Izham is known to portray an enigmatic and elusive mood in his subjects. His brushes of colour create rough silhouettes in an expressionistic manner with details, contours and crevices accurately captured. At mere glance, this piece portrays foliage. But at closer look, it discloses a motley of sketches that include a chair, buildings, flower, butterfly, dragonfly and many more. It’s a stunning piece, executed brilliantly.
