About Mastura Abdul Rahman

Mastura Abdul Rahman (b. 1963, Singapore) is a contemporary woman artist best known for her contributions towards a new idiom of Malay art during the 1980’s ‘identity consciousness’ period in Malaysia. Abdul Rahman studied Fine Art at ITM’s School of Art & Design during the early eighties. There, she was introduced to Persian and Mughal miniature paintings, Ukiyo-E prints, and the Malay traditional architecture and decorative arts, which were formative influences within her practice.  She represented Malaysia at the 3rd ASEAN Youth Painting Workshop, held in Yogyakarta, Indonesia during her third year at ITM. Upon graduating in 1986, she was the winner of the Malaysia’s Young Contemporaries Art Competition. Since then her paintings have been exhibited extensively in Southeast Asia, following touring ASEAN art exhibitions and programs. Her works have been exhibited in Australia, Canada, Germany, Singapore, Indonesia, and Britain. Her paintings are in the collections of Malaysia's National Visual Art Gallery, Bank Negara Malaysia, Malaysia Airlines, Beijing Art Gallery (in conjunction with Olympic Fine Art, London, 2012) and several other corporate art collections. She is currently a Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Creative Multimedia at Multimedia University (MMU), Cyberjaya, Malaysia.
