Beyond Silence by Rashid Diab – A Retrospective
Venue: Bahrain National Museum

Sudanese artist, Dr. Rashid Diab, carries the obsession of an artist and the questions of a curious mind, both of which are only satisfied by color, form and shadow. His secrets and his identity rely in colors, and he is very realistic as far as he is abstract and emotional and flowing like the river Nile, which is his main inspiration. Exhibition runs until the 30th.
