Zaman Jassim

Zaman Jassim was born in 1971 in Al-Khobar in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. In 1989 he received his Diploma from the Art Institute in Riyadh. He is a member of the Bahrain Art Society and the Qatif Artists Group. He has participated in group exhibitions in the Arab World, North Africa, Europe, India and Taiwan. His work is in the collections of the Al Mansouria Foundation, the Kinda Foundation, the Barjeel Foundation, the League of Arab States, Emaar International and the Saudi Aramco Company.

He evokes earthy colours into a unique expression through mixed media. His style is heavily textured with unusual forms; rectangles, cones and some that look like appliqué works on the wall. His work is enriched with symbols, tattoos, patterns and calligraphy and narrates a simultaneously stark and rich visual story. His hollow beams and bent plates seem aligned in space to create a harmonious panoply of substance.
