Adnan Al Ahmed

Bahrain | 1960

Adnan Al Ahmed’s paintings are characterized by geometric figures, bold and smooth planes of colour and narratives expressed through simplified compositions. Inspired by music, poetry and philosophy, Al Ahmed’s work seeks to express deeply personal memories and thought processes that are simultaneously fundamentally human.
