Fadilah Karim

ファディラ・カリムは1987年、ジョホール出身、セランゴール在住、将来が嘱望されているマレーシアの作家です。MARA工科大学で美術とテクノロジーの修士号を取得。2013年にHOM Art Trans YOUNG GUNS Awardを、2021年にUOB Painting of the Year (ブロンズ) を受賞しました。

Fadilah Karim was born in Johor in 1987, lives and works in Selangor, and is a promising Malaysian artist. She graduated with a Master's degree in Fine Arts and Technology from MARA Institute of Technology and was awarded the HOM Art Trans YOUNG GUNS Award in 2013 and the UOB Painting of the Year (Bronze) in 2021.
In recent years, she has been focusing on her life itself as her subject matter. In particular, the experience of having a daughter and becoming a mother is particularly significant. In her work, she depicts the ambivalence characteristic of a little girl - beauty in the midst of confusion, joy in the face of fear - and the gentle strength of a mother who accepts her daughter's pranks. They appear to be scenes of reality, but at the same time they are imbued with symbolic meaning. Perhaps surprisingly, the small events in the lives of parents and child reach an extremely profound universality through the painterly expression thereof.
