Hilmi Johandi

b. 1987, Singapore
Lives and works in Singapore

Hilmi Johandi works primarily with painting and explores interventions with new media that are associated within the domain of framing, fragmentation (deconstruction) and compression (reconstruction). His explorations are set in the range of the familiar and symbolic motifs perceived in the context of Singapore. He composes and synthesises images from film, archival footages and photographs into a fragmented montage that hints at the social effects of rapid development, and the personal desires and contempt of those who embrace modernisation.
