Ebrahim Bu Saad
Ebrahim Bu-Saad was educated as an artist in Iraq and is a founding member of the Bahrain Art Society. BuSaad is a brilliant calligrapher and colorist, and both elements are always present in his paintings, drawings and prints. His work is inspired by his immediate surroundings – the alleys, people, old quarters and dhows that characterize the old town of Muharraq, where he was born. With a great zest for life, women, birds and musical instruments feature prominently in the artist’s oeuvre. Ebrahim Bu Saad’s work has been shown in Bahrain, the Cairo and Sharjah Biennales and is the recipient of the Al Dana Award (Bahrain) and the Golden Palm Award (Qatar).
