Lives and Works: Malaysia
Hamidi Hadi, a graduate of UiTM with a Masters Degree in Painting from the University of Wolverhampton, is a Malaysian artist whose work utilises a variety of mixed media which include acrylic paint, industrial paint, polyurethane and enamel paint among others. His canvases are said to radiate abstract yet poetic qualities and portray ethereal emotions. The artist has exhibited in many group exhibitions in various countries including the United Kingdom, Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore and China.
Hamidi has won numerous art awards including the coveted Philip Morris ASEAN Biennale Art Award in 2000, and Bank Negara’s Kijang Award in 2004.
He exhibited Indelible Markings in 2005, at Wei-Ling Gallery (then known as the Townhouse Gallery) and has since taken part in both solo and group exhibitions with the gallery. Antara, an exhibition held at Wei-Ling Contemporary in January – February 2012, was Hamidi Hadi’s fourth and most recent solo exhibition.
Over time, Hamidi’s work has become less representational and more abstract, due to his experimentation with different materials. The artist has such a strong passion for painting and claims that his ideas come to him subconsciously in flashes of colours and visuals during his everyday life experiences.
