Hilmi Johandi (b. 1987, Singapore) uses cinematic language to develop methods of compressing temporal and physical spaces into non-linear narratives in his paintings. In his recent solo exhibitions, Framing Camellia and Dusk to Dawn | Fajar ke Senja, he turns his gaze to Singapore in the late 50s and 60s. 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 despairs of those who attempt to embrace modernisation. Hilmi graduated from Lasalle College of the Arts, Singapore in 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Fine Arts. He has participated in a number of exhibitions in Singapore where he lives and works.
