Issarezal Ismail

b. 1978, Malaysia

Issarezal Ismail developed an enduring love for nature during his upbringing near the sea and mangrove swamps. Inspired by his grandfather, a boat builder, and traditional musician, he pursued a fine arts degree at UiTM Malaysia, later becoming a lecturer at various institutions in Malaysia. Presently a senior lecturer at UiTM Perak, he established a nearby studio after a five-year stint in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, where he completed a Ph.D. in Visual Art.
Blending hyper-realistic techniques and an air of surrealism, Issarezal captures a sense of curiosity and peculiarity through his work. Reflecting his upbringing by the sea, his subjects often see their heads replaced with coral forms, covering the expanse of their bodies. Posing his subjects with a sense of ease and relaxation, Issarezal captures a relationship between one and nature – one that is characterised by solitude, peace, and imagination.
Over the span of his career Issarezal has participated in various solo and group exhibitions across Malaysia; his most recent shows include his 2022 solo exhibition, ‘I Have Crossed the Oceans of Time to Find You’, and the 2023 group exhibition, ‘Kumpulan Solo’, both held in Kuala Lumpur. With a unique perspective, his work is treasured in the collections of private clients across Malaysia and Singapore.
