Rashid Al Khalifa
Trained in England, Rashid Al Khalifa’s artistic journey has taken him from landscapes and figurative paintings in the early years to abstract and color field painting, mounted on unique convex canvases. Through his retrospective at the Bahrain National Museum in 2010, Rashid Al Khalifa came to the attention of the wider art world. The artist has recently expanded his color field work to enamel paint on chrome convex structures. Al Khalifa’s creations have been exhibited internationally, and reached the 56th Venice Art Biennale and the tRio Biennal in Rio in 2015. Rashid Al Khalifa is a leading figure in Bahrain’s art world – as an artist, an avid supporter of the arts and founder of the Bahrain Art Society.
