MA Fine Arts

Zul is one of Singapore's leading sound artists at the forefront of a generation of sound-media artists in the local contemporary arts scene, a genre of contemporary art that is famous for its interdisciplinary approach and experimental edge. In his practice, Zui explores spatial awareness, aural architecture and social issues in a subtle, yet impactful way.

Zul represented Singapore with a sound art performance at the Ogaki Biennale in 2006 and was Singapore's first sound artist with a full-on sound sculpture at the Singapore Pavillion of the 52nd Venice Biennale in 2007.

In early 2017, Zul was awarded the the Soichiro Fukutake Prize by Benesse Holding Inc for his artwork, commissioned for the 2016 Singapore Biennale. The piece, titled SONICreflection, was acquired by Fukutake Foundation and has been part of Benesse Art Site Naoshima since February 2019.
