Khalil Ibrahim

Khalil was born in 1934 in Kelantan. He is one of the few Malaysians to have received their art training at Central St. Martins School of Art and Design in London in the 60's. His career spans four decades with many solo and group exhibitions held in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Switzerland.

Khalil had a joint exhibition with artist Yeoh Jin Ling at the Australian High Commission in 1984. Using acrylic, oil, watercolour and in batik, his preference for figuration has led to memorable images of men and women from the east coast malay fishing villages dramatically set against stark backgrounds of blues and greens and watercolour landscapes of east coast villages.
