Dyn (Safaruddin bin Abdul Hamid)
Born in 1977, Dyn lives and works in Singapore.
Working with the notions of time, displacement and memories that we associate with mainly inanimate objects, Dyn aims to offer the audience an opportunity to make an emotional connection with spaces and places featured in his paintings. Working around the sense of nostalgia and how particular objects allow people to reconnect with elements of their past, Dyn aims to highlight the importance of our personal and cultural history.
A fine arts major, Dyn obtained a Diploma from LASALLE-SIA College of the Arts, Bachelor’s Degree from RMIT and a Master’s Degree from Open University.
Dyn has been recognized with several awards and scholarships, including the National Arts Council Arts Bursary in 2002, the Winston Oh Travel Scholarship in 2002 and again in 2004, and the Della Butcher Award in 2003.
He has exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Singapore and the region.
