Hilmi Johandi (b. 1987, Singapore) 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.

Hilmi is the recipient of the Young Artist Award 2018, NAC Arts Scholarship (Postgraduate) 2017, LASALLE Scholarship 2017 and the Goh Chok Tong Youth Promise Award. Solo exhibitions include Stagecraft: Landscapes and Paradise, Ota Fine Arts, Singapore (2019), Dusk to Dawn | Fajar ke Senja, OCBC Artspace | Galerie Steph, Singapore (2014) and Framing Camellia, IONArt, Singapore (2014). He also participated in group exhibitions such as: Bit Rot, Institute of Contemporary Art Singapore, Singapore (2018), State of Motion 2017: Through Stranger Eyes, National Library Board, Singapore (2017), Figment of Film, ADM Gallery, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (2016), Primavera 4, Galerie Frédéric Lacroix, Paris (2015), Portraits in Verses, Fred Torres Gallery, New York (2015), Flux - City of Change, Strata Art, Saatchi Gallery, London (2013).
