Khairullah Rahim

Khairullah Rahim (b. 1987, Singapore) graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting from LASALLE College of the Arts Singapore, in partnership with Goldsmiths, University of London in 2013.

His works are motivated by engaging and sometimes challenging stories of the marginalisation of minorities and are often contextual analogies for human societies. Both factual events and personal experiences are fundamental in his works as he mixes fact and fiction to create a discourse.

Khairullah’s works have been showcased in numerous exhibitions and art fairs abroad, such as in Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan, Turkey and USA. Artist-in-residencies include YOUKOBO Art Residency Programme, Tokyo Japan (2013) and Taipei Artist Village, Taiwan (2017). Khairullah is the winner of the 2017 IMPART Awards, Singapore and has upcoming residencies at the Hubei Institute of Fine Arts, China and KulturKontakt, Austria.
