About Ahmad Fuad Osman

Born in 1969, Kedah, Ahmad Fuad Osman is an acclaimed multidisciplinary artist who works predominantly in installation and paintings. After graduating with a BA in Fine Arts from MARA Institute of Technology (now UiTM) in 1991, the artist was a founding member of the MATAHATI art collective that played a significant role in the contemporary art scene in Malaysia in the late 1990s. His practice often embraces socio-political themes such as power, identity politics and historical amnesia. Some memorable works include his award-winning Recollections of Long Lost Memories which garnered the Jurors’ Choice Award at the APBF Signature Art Prize, held at the Singapore Art Museum in 2008. He has exhibited in various countries, with recent exhibitions including PRIMITIVE, A+ Works of Art Gallery, Malaysia, 2018; Singapore Biennale: An Atlas of Mirrors, Singapore Art Museum, Singapore 2016-2017; Multiple Languages, Silverlens Gallery, Makati, Manila, Philippines, 2014; Welcome to the Jungle: Contemporary Art in Southeast Asia From the Collection of Singapore Art Museum, Yokohama Museum of Art, Japan, 2013.
