Wan Jamila Wan Shaiful Bahri, known professionally as artjamila® was born in 2002 in Kuala Lumpur. She started drawing as a tool of communication in 2006, at the age of 4 and now this gifted talent has paved her path as an artist when she was only 14 years old in 2017. Her creation of art is purely from her soul without any formal art education. She draws intricate patterns of vibrant colours with intricate details and human expressions based on her experiences and observations. She has developed a distinctive personal style. Her story has appeared on television stations, newspapers and magazines. Her journey has been documented in a book titled “My Journey with Artjamila, Part 1: From Nonverbal to Artistry” which was published in November 2018. To date, Artjamila has sold over 80 original paintings to collectors in Malaysia and Switzerland.
