Dhavinder Singh


Dhavinder Singh (b. 1983) is a Kuala Lumpur- based artist whose art practice deals with the repurposing and reconfiguring of materials. Trained in fine art at the Malaysian Institute of Art (MIA) and the Cardiff School of Art & Design, UK, Dhavinder finds himself still testing the parameters of his practice and the mediums he engages with. In his body of work, he tends to express a visual metaphor of his reaction towards a particular space and subject matter. Bearing witness to the overdevelopment of Kuala Lumpur in the last few decades, Dhavinder’s deep affinity for the industrial area of Kuala Lumpur in which he grew up—Chan Sow Lin—features prominently in his work.
