Abdul Adbullah

Time Out Sydney's Forty Under 40


Abdul Abdullah is one of Sydney’s most promising emerging artists. His work, which spans painting, photography, video and performance, has won him the Blake Prize and made him a three-time Archibald finalist. He has shown in the MCA, GOMA and the NGA, and he’s
a finalist in the Basil Sellers Prize at Melbourne’s Ian Potter Gallery. Abdullah promotes others in the art scene through his FBi Radio show Canvas.  

In the future Abdul hopes Sydney: “Has a drop in rental prices. Also, I think there’s already a lot of community support for the arts in Sydney and I just hope that it’s not undervalued.”
