Khalil Al Hashimi and one of his works

Khalil Al Hashimi brings his art to 'On the Wall'

MANAMA, March 20, 2019

Khalil Al Hashimi, a pioneer in sculpture and winner of the Merit Award at the first Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs Exhibition in Bahrain, will join the ‘On the Wall 2019’ show next month.
On the Wall, the dedicated event to promote Bahrain artists to a wider audience, is taking place at the Interiors Expo that will be held under the patronage of HRH Prince Khalifa Bin Salman Al Khalifa, Prime Minister of Bahrain, from April 23 to 25 at the Bahrain International Exhibition Centre.
Al Hashimi holds a Master’s degree in sculpture from the Academy of Fine Arts, Leningrad, Russia. His works have been exhibited internationally and across the Gulf region. His career spanning more than three decades has earned him several awards.
His vision seems to transform the non-physical into the physical, which often includes being able to reduce an idea to its bare elements. He is known for doing this with his iconic bird sculptures, transporting us from the material to the ethereal. The elegance of composition and superior craftsmanship make his works seem graceful and almost floating, despite being made of heavy materials like stone or metal.
Along with Al Hashimi, there will be 30 other artists from Bahrain and the GCC who will display their works at On the Wall. The show will have artists displaying their works across a variety of mediums, including painting, photography and sculpture. Some of the artists will run a series of workshops on calligraphy and live painting and creativity sessions.
Interiors Expo is strategically sponsored by Hempel Paints and Tamkeen serves as the supporting organisation for the event. – TradeArabia News Service
