He studied in his home city before living in Melbourne and returning to Perth where he shares a house and studio with his brother, a sculptor. He grew up in Victoria Park and East Cannington, both low socio-economic areas with other second-generation migrants from Malaysian, Turkish and Indigenous backgrounds. He experienced racism as a form of inter-ethnic tribalism in his early school years before gaining an art scholarship to Applecross High School in year eight where the student population comprised 70 per cent Asians from mainland China and Indonesia (Abdullah 3 June 2011 interview with author).
