This is the 3rd in the series of 'Bandit' and 'Rebirth'.This artwork perpetuates the idea of unity, where two individuals are tied to the same culture which carries their entire beings throughout mortal existence, and into the afterlife. The portrayal of the batik between a man and a woman, in unity of marriage or perhaps a simple bond represents a personification of the idea that one may never be separated from their culture and heritage through life and into death. While the bodies appear to be emaciated, the batik fabric shines through brilliantly and stands out in the artwork, bringing itself to the forefront and showcasing how it is the root of our existence and defines who we are as individuals.

Lives and Works: 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.
