Retrospective for Dr Rashid Diab coming to Bahrain National Museum

A retrospective exhibition for Sudanese artist Dr Rashid Diab is coming to the Bahrain National Museum next month.

Diab’s work focuses on colours and shadow and he often depicts abstract forms swathed in clothing or hijabs rather than including faces or identifying features.

His main inspiration is the river Nile and he regularly paints desert scenes.

According to the Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities, the retrospective will help you “discover his artistic identity, which has been founded on the principle of converting and transforming one of the cultural or social elements into a subject matter, and then turn this subject into a vision through imagination and beauty”.

The exhibition will run from Sunday November 3 until February 15, 2020. You can visit the exhibition during normal working hours for the Bahrain National Museum, which is closed on Tuesdays.

The museum is also currently hosting an exhibition on the Dolls of Japan until November 13.
