Abdul-Rahman Abdullah

Abdul-Rahman Abdullah (b. 1977) is an artist based on Wadjuk Nyungar country, on a cattle property in the Peel region of Western Australia. Working primarily in sculpture and installation, he explores the intersections of identity, culture and the natural world. Living and working in an agricultural environment, his practice offers alternative perspectives across diverse, and often disparate communities.

Since graduating from Curtin university in 2012, Abdul-Rahman has exhibited widely around Australia, notably at the Adelaide Biennial 2016 and 2022 (AGSA), The National 2019 (MCA) and Tarrawarra Biennial 2023. In late 2023 he was appointed to the council for The National Gallery of Australia, Canberra.
