Her works draw inspiration from a spectrum of cultures from her childhood in Malaysia, schooling in India and her bachelor’s in London. She specialised in weave and print at Central Saint Martins, earning a degree in Textile Design. She returned home to Malaysia where she founded her eponymous design studio in 2017.

Her most notable exhibitions include The Back Room (2020), Deck, Singapore (2020) and Bank Negara Malaysia (2018). She was also selected for the Art Girl Rising residency at Sepat House (2019).

Artist Statement

"In the midst of the lockdown, the present became a blur, the future loomed uncertain and the past was under review. During this time, Kush Linfield and Shan Shan Lim created a series of collaborative paintings titled ‘Shared Memory’. Each piece was first drawn by Kush and then given colour by Shan Shan. They reflect distant memories that reemerged during this introspective time."

"Thank you for putting together your vision, bringing such fantastic
people together and for now adding to my home with such a fantastic
piece, for which I am very grateful!"

"Before Subject Matter I would never have thought about being an
art-buyer. It felt like a world I didn't understand and didn't belong
in. You have opened my eyes!"

Cheryl | London

"I was amazed by the buying experience. I was contacted right after I confirmed the purchase and was taken care of all the way to the delivery, and even after. Never had such a friendly and professional service when buying a piece of art."
