The Bahraini fine artist Omar Al Rashid goes to extremes in the abstract realm in his paintings. However, he maintains his style, retaining the charm of his environment without compromising its original identity.
“I am surrounded by a charming local setting which acts as a catalyst for my search of colors and concepts. I find my lost soul in them,” Al Rashed said.
Al Rashed, who holds a BA in Art Education from Helwan University in Cairo, has participated in the Arab Youth Festival in Riyadh in 1982.
The Bahraini artist established a close rapport with his people and fans. So when he depicts a flying bird, it first flies in his wild imagination to land eventually in the minds of the viewers. The bird is exploited by the torments of life and reflects the artist’s pensive approach.
“We feel upbeat when we see the Bulbul birds, and many people raise them indoors, keeping them free and not shackled in their cages, as they are friendly,” Al Rashed added.
Al Rashid kept in touch with different disciplines related to art, spending time with poets and writers on various occasions. However, he remained loyal to his choice of warm colors inspired by the beauty of the sky in Bahrain.
