No matter what Dahilan is creating, his work has always been in line with his talent and passion for art. He was also a muralist, a designer of signage and icons, and even immersed himself in handicrafts.
He is best known for his art made of triangles, a painstaking process where each piece is carefully put together to explode into one beautiful piece. His works are inspired by family, bonding, love, and diversity.
He describes his works as: "Most of my paintings are intimate silences. They invite subdued attention and don't impose meaning on what the viewer sees. The combination of divergent forms and techniques makes the work speak for itself. Only those who have discerning eyes see what you see". He tests the traditional way of viewing art and allows his viewers to give their own interpretations of his creations.
He loves to experiment and challenge the traditional in art as he continues to harness his craft, which makes his art as boundless as his imagination.
Dahilan's attention to detail and unique style have garnered him recognition locally and internationally in various exhibitions here and abroad.
