Using the long and distinguished history of textile in the Indian culture, Khairulddin drew his inspiration from cultural motifs rooted in nature as the subject of this mural. This design celebrates the rich textile tradition and material culture, the motifs that are used do not merely illustrate nature, but are also laced with spirituality, environmental history and symbolism.
Khairulddin Wahab graduated with a BA in Fine Arts from Lasalle College of the Arts in 2014. He has exhibited in various local and international exhibitions since then, including Biennale Jogja 2019, S.E.A. Focus and State of Motion. He was the recipient of the 2018 UOB painting of the year award and Winston Oh Travel Research award. He is a Singaporean artist whose practice is informed by anthropogenic histories of Singapore and the Malay Archipelago. Referencing material that spans anthropology to visual culture and symbolism, Khairulddin explores the influence of the natural world in forming particular beliefs and cultural traditions, through notions such as mythology, spirituality, and mysticism.
