Syamil Dasuki (1990 - )

Born in 1990, Syamil Dasuki graduated from the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA) in 2014 with a Diploma in Fine Art with Distinction, majoring in sculpture. His skills and knowledge led him to attain the Ngee Ann Kongsi Merit Bursary Award in his second year of study. A new face in the arts industry, Syamil is no stranger to many youths. In 2008, he founded Mission: Singapore (M:SG). This collective brought people together for flashmobs and was a speaker at TEDxYouth@Singapore in 2011.

Syamil enjoys learning about interpersonal relationships and the connections between humans and objects. His interest was piqued in 2008 with the founding of M:SG and planning the organisation’s projects. Today, his curiosity and fascination are conveyed through his art, and a subject matter he frequently examines is the procreation of humans. The artist is also an active participant in several group exhibitions and art-related activities both locally and abroad. His first solo exhibition, Five Years of Mission: Singapore, was held under M:SG at his alma mater in 2013. He has also exhibited art pieces in group exhibitions, including Berdakwat by Chan + Hori Contemporary in 2016 and Echo by the Substation in 2020. Syamil also runs yellowthatcherry, a store that sells kintsugi pieces, a Japanese art form that repairs broken objects by mending them with lacquer or gold.
