Hisyamuddin Abdullah

Artist

Selangor, Malaysia

Hisyamuddin Abdullah (b. 1989, Marang, Terengganu, Malaysia) is an artist based in Selangor, Malaysia.

He studied fine art at Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM), Shah Alam, graduating in 2012.

Working mostly with charcoal and acrylic, his paintings can be distinguished by how they hold notes of serenity, as well as a powerful tension. With a creative perspective grounded in satire, humour, and sarcasm, and an element of magic realism, his works comment on his personal beliefs about the current sociopolitical climate of modern-day Malaysia through different stages of experience.

As a student, he won 1st Prize in both Mixed Media and Oil/Acrylic categories at the Tanjong Heritage National Level Art Competition in 2011, and was among the artists selected for HOM Art Trans’ Young Guns Awards in 2016.

He held his first solo show, SArKAs at TAKSU Kuala Lumpur in 2014, followed by his second solo show, KOTA(k)
MAGIS in July 2021 and his third solo show, DISTOPIA at SARENG Gallery in 2023.

He has exhibited extensively in Malaysia and Singapore, and his works have featured in art fairs and gallery shows in Bangkok, Kaohsiung and Seoul. He lives and works in Ara Damansara, Selangor, Malaysia.
