This is the 3rd pc of the series called Phantom Planet.Its titled,
This painting explores the animalistic self present in all of humankind, illuminating the greatest sins and desires that we hold buried deep within us. By drawing a dichotomy between Man and Animal, the painting seeks to illustrate the relationship between man and his insidious ‘double’ in the face of trials and tribulations, and if he will succumb to denouncing his own traditions and beliefs in the temptations that the age of modernity brings.
Based in: Singapore
As a contemporary artist based in Singapore, Rashid renders his own visual and conceptual interpretations gleaned from observations of everyday life and modern culture.
Taking inspiration from Michelangelo, Carravagio, Pablo Picasso and Jeff Koons, Rashid absorbs everything that surrounds him. The nature of his work varies from time to time and is mostly rendered on canvas, paper and fabric.
Rashid works from his studio at home, often at odd hours while trying to capture the rush of blood to his head. To him, painting is like a dream, something that can be imagined in front of you. He believes that every house should have an art piece, because every house contains a dream.
