Noor Iskandar, born in Singapore in 1989, is an award winning, multidisciplinary artist. Based in Singapore, he graduated from NTU School of Art, Design and Media with an BFA in Photography and Digital Imaging (Honours). He is currently pursuing his Masters in Arts (Research), having been awarded the College of Humanities and Social Sciences Scholarship. His works have been exhibited both in Singapore as well as internationally, including in London, Valencia, Pingyao, Belfast and Bandung. In 2013, Noor was chosen as one of the ten emerging voices from around the globe to be part of the World Islamic Economic Forum's Marketplace of Creative Arts inaugural fellowship programme. Later that year, he showcased alongside budding artists at the ION Art Young Talent Programme as part of the 2013 Affordable Art Fair, and went on to win the solo showcase to be held in 2014 at ION Art Gallery. In May 2014, Noor was awarded the prestigious Kwek Leng Joo Prize of Excellence in Still Photography 2014. Noor sees art as a spiritual investigation in line with his ardour for poetry and emotional gravity, with the undercurrents of his works reflecting these bouts of lyrical balladry. He is passionate in investigating the blurring of beauty and truth from the particular perspective of realities and prejudices in this age. In dealing with contentious issues, he mediates deep introspection; seeking solace through convoluted social crises.
