In conjunction with the CAN Art Fair in Ibiza and Alya Hatta having work in the Moosey booth, we dedicate today’s A Portfolio to the Malaysian-born, UK-art schooled artist. 

Alya Hatta (b.1999, Malaysia) is an interdisciplinary artist based between London and Kuala Lumpur. She graduated from her BA Fine Art at Goldsmiths, University of London before finding herself in the MA Painting Course at Royal College of Art. She has exhibited internationally in London, Milan, Paris, Kuala Lumpur, Tokyo, Tübingen and Sydney amongst others. Hatta is a member of ‘Unamed Collective’ and ‘FloorFive’ collective, who are currently part of a year long residency at Goldsmiths CCA.

Drawing on personal experiences and memories, Hatta uses the dynamism of colour, form, sound and space to explore the realm of digital and physical in representing her Southeast Asian identity, and to portray the colourful intimacies of the diasporic human condition. She takes inspiration from the communities of both her South-London and Kuala Lumpur residences as well as Southeast Asian mythology to create alternate realities in an attempt to find new spaces in which she can call home.
