Born in Muar, Malaysia, 1968

"Azman's canvases are bursting with vivid, often flourescent colours that are free and energetic."

Azman Hilmi earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts in MARA Institute of Arts, Shah Alam. His string of awards began in 1983, some as prestigious as the 'Anugerah Khidmat Cemerlang' award by the Malaysian Ministry of Education. Azman's involvement in numerous selected group exhibitions makes him a versatile and contemporary artist in the Malaysian art scene.
