Khalid Shahin is a full time artist, sculptor and product designer. Through time he tried to combine and integrate Text-Art and Arabic calligraphy with his abstract paintings as well as his unique sculptures to reflect the fiber qualities of paint in dough and to take his modern sculptures to a new levels.
With more than 30 years in the field of media and advertising and mainly in corporate identity branding and packaging . Mr Shahin creates spaces with fluid and unstable boundaries employing his unique vision to the beauty of the Arabic Calligraphy as an outstanding inspiration material and tool, in its infinitely subtle, curves and intricate patterns. He believes that Forms in nature become a language in the geometry of consciousness at every scale and it is from this diversity of phenomenal lifeforms that Art emerges. And because he is self taught, though his ongoing education consists of a lifelong dedication to the intricate study of new techniques and methods.
His artistic focus is to elegantly fuse the richness of traditional Arabic letters, shapes and curves with the innovative spirit of a modern renaissance. He lives his art path in service to painting forth new visions which invite a wide audience to bask in the inspirational light of creativity.
Shahin’s paintings are inventive in their forms as he has taken his art far beyond the limitations of the status quo, into an altogether unprecedented realm. By devising special techniques which allow his artwork to be constructed in nearly any shape, the form of the canvas itself becomes suited to adequately fulfill the depth of his visions. In joyous exploration of creative freedom, elegant forms, curves and impossible angles emerge in his two and three dimensional work. This versatility spans genre and medium alike, allowing the artist full access to the brilliant splendor of unlimited creation.
Between 1992 and 2012, Mr Shahin took part in more than 17 worldwide exhibitions and came to the attention of the art world at a young age. Mr Shahin works are included in several private and public collections in almost every country around the globe.
