Khairullah Rahim, Artist


Khairullah Rahim (born 1987, Singapore) is a multimedia artist working across painting, assemblage, video and photography. His practice is concerned with the stories and experiences of marginalised communities whose identities do not subscribe within societal normativity. Incorporating everyday and found objects from spaces in which these specific communities in habit, his works allude to the veiled and lived experiences of his varied subjects.


Khairullah’s works have been showcased in numerous exhibitions abroad, such as Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan, Turkey and USA. In 2019, he participated in the Singapore Biennale: Every Step in the Right Direction. In 2018, he was commissioned to make site-specific works for Facebook’s APAC Headquarters Office, under their AIR Programme.


His artist-in-residencies include Salzburger Kunstverein, KulturKontakt, Salzburg, Austria (2018); Hubei Institute of Fine Arts, Hubei, China (2018); Artist Village, Taiwan (2018) and YOUKOBO Art Residency Programme, Tokyo, Japan (2013). His works are in the collections of the Singapore Art Museum and SUNPRIDE Foundation.


Khairullah Rahim is currently based in Singapore as a part-time lecturer at LASALLE College of the Arts and is exclusively represented by Yavuz Gallery.
