Artist Profile

Rekha Menon (b.1976) is a self-taught artist who took the leap to pursue a full-time career in visual arts after spending over a decade in the branding and media relations field. Hailing from Malaysia, she was born and is currently based in Kuala Lumpur. Menon's pop artistic style combines elements of stylised figurations and abstract motifs, creating a unique body of work that captivates the viewer's imagination.


Fascinated by the enigma of the subconscious mind, Menon employs a vibrant and colourful palette that harmoniously intertwines lines, shapes, patterns, symbols, and shading. This interplay of visual elements signifies the vast spectrum of emotions and expressions she seeks to convey. Menon's artwork has garnered international recognition, with her pieces showcased on prestigious platforms in Indonesia, India, Italy, Japan, Pakistan, Singapore, and Thailand. Notably, her talent was acknowledged with an Honourable Award from the International Watercolour Society during its 2018 International Watercolour Biennale.


Her creations have found homes in private collections across the globe, including in countries such as India, Indonesia, Germany, Norway, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand, US and her home country of Malaysia. Through her art, Rekha Menon continues to explore the depths of human emotion and the hidden landscapes of the mind.

Artist Statement

I've always been captivated by the intricate tapestry of humanity, drawn to unravel the profound threads that unite us as multi-dimensional beings. My artistic journey navigates the depths of subjects entwined with emotions, inner healing, unity, and transformation. I firmly believe that through genuine care and equitable opportunities for all, we can nurture a world brimming with empathy, kindness and peace


My artistic endeavors are driven by the desire to weave a visual narrative that mirrors my sentiments, with the ultimate intention of casting a positive influence upon society. My aim is to craft art that strikes a chord at a profound level, triggering a ripple effect that contributes meaningfully to the world we inhabit.
