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. Born in Malaysia, her formative years were spent in Penang. She 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 to captivate 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 (IWS) during its 2018 International Watercolour Biennale. 

Through her art, Rekha Menon continues to explore the depths of human emotions and the hidden landscapes of the mind.
