Noor Iskandar is a multidisciplinary artist based in Singapore, currently in his final year at Nanyang Technological University, School of Art, Design and Media. He is pursuing his Bachelor of Fine Arts majoring in Photography and Digital Imaging. Iskandar has participated as a visual artist both locally in Singapore as well as in the international arena including London, Valencia, Pingyao, Belfast and Bandung.

Noor Iskandar sees art as a philosophical investigation, dealing with social and cultural issues that are laden with complexities and perceptions- of judgements and prejudice. Recognizing the power of this medium, he holds dearly to his ambition of using his craft as an avenue to identify, express and address vital issues especially those dear within his epistemology. As a visual artist who has an overpouring ardour for poetry and emotional overlay, the undercurrents of his works reflect these bouts of emotions and lyrical balladry; most times shrouded with clouds of melancholia as he contemplates into the frailty and deficiencies of our identity and memories; of living itself. Muslim imageries and icons such as the religious garbs are often his recurring subjects, in externalising the conflict and confusion stirred within him. In engaging issues that may be contentious, he has embarked on a deep introspection and inquiry; like seeking solace and dialectical debate through these problematic social crises. Read Less
