Fadilah Karim

b. 1987, Malaysia

Born in Batu Pahat in 1987, Fadilah Karim first fell in love with art through childhood colouring contests. However, it wasn’t until a short mentorship under Malaysian figurative painter Amron Omar that she began to view art as an attainable career path. Fadilah’s solo exhibitions “Secret Lies” at TAKSU Kuala Lumpur in 2016 showcased her signature aesthetic – the disciplined use of colour, intimate portraiture, distinct elements of shadow and light, and a sense of drama and mystery.
As one of the most prolific young artists in Malaysia, she is known for her body of large-scale figurative works which bear a certain muted realism. Fadilah always refers to her works as autobiographical in nature – melancholic scenes of a girl, her face partially hidden from the viewer (sometimes with a sandy rabbit), or characters falling into the unknown.
Holding a Masters in Fine Art & Technology from UiTM, Fadilah has exhibited internationally in Singapore, Germany, Taiwan and Korea.
