Ibrahim knew that art was his passion from his early childhood where he would study at the prestigious Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in Singapore before continuing his education at the Byam Shaw School of Art and the Royal Academy Schools in 1959. He would then be working as a postman as well as film extra to help him financially in London and would later travel to France and Italy to further expand his techniques after he was awarded an Award of Merit Scholarship.
After that, he was appointed the resident artist at University of Malaya and would go on to establish the Ibrahim Hussein Museum and Cultural Foundation in Langkawi island, which is a non-profit foundation and museum developed to promote art and culture to the masses.
